Mariah Carey sets ‘Magical Christmas Special’ at Apple TV+

Mariah Carey is taking her love for Christmas a step further.

The 50-year-old superstar will team up with Apple TV+ for “Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special,” according to a release from the streamer.

“A star-studded lineup of surprise guest appearances” is promised to join the singer for the special, though no names were given, nor was an exact release date.

Additionally, the special, which was dubbed “innovative,” will contain elements of “music, dancing and animation driven by a universally heartwarming story that brings the world together.”

The songstress is known for her domination over the Christmas season, musically speaking, in large part due to her hit “All I Want for Christmas is You,” which was released in 1994.

The song has continued to break records for Carey, who became the first artist in history to have a No. 1 hit in four different decades when the song topped the charts in December, 25 years after its initial release.

The 1994 hit tune also broke the records for the highest-charting holiday song on the Billboard US Hot 100 by a solo artist; the most streamed track on Spotify in 24 hours (female); and the most weeks in the U.K. singles Top 10 chart for a Christmas song, according to a press release from Guinness from last Nov.

Carey also released a new music video for the song last year, featuring appearances from the likes of Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian, Kelly Ripa, John Travolta, Ariana Grande and more.

She also lent her voice to the 2017 holiday-themed animated flick “The Star.”

Carey is also preparing for the release of her Memoir, “The Meaning of Mariah Carey” in late September.
