Mariah Carey unveils new ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ video ‘Make My Wish Come True Edition’ for iconic hit’s 25th anniversary
Although the music video for the original No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hit had a rustic natural charm, "Songbird Supreme" (as deemed by Guinness) Mariah Carey gifts us this Christmas with a reboot edition of 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' with a merged title 'Make My Wish Come True Edition'.
It is always refreshing to see families proud of their own, and with the video, Mariah Carey has brought along her kids, eight-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan, to light up the music video stage, along with 'Mixed-ish' star, Mykal-Michelle Harris. Harris, the bright young star already has a few big performances in her arsenal, namely 'Mixed-ish', 'Little Big Shots', 'A Kid Called Mayonnaise' and more.
The 'Make My Wish Come True Edition' video features an intro with Harris stumbling upon a streetside store with full Christmas decor and Carey standing between two toy soldiers, two nutcrackers and some teddy bears in the display window. A Santa appears in the street as he overlooks the setting from the sidewalk.
Carey wears tight-fitting Santa attire this time around and is frozen still, with a captivated, wishful Harris staring in. The scene quickly begins its magic on cue with the music, along with some beautiful graphical effects that team with the new video perfectly.
The real Santa leaves a playful wink as Harris enters the store to find a secret door. As the door opens we are greeted to an enchanting snowy utopia with Santas, sexy elves and Monroe and Moroccan dancing in Christmas spirit, and of course, songstress Mariah Carey.
According to Billboard, Mariah Carey finished a three-night stretch on 'The Late Late Show' with James Corden on Thursday night (December 19) by performing an extra-festive "All I Want For Christmas Is You."
Mimi also performed 2010's 'Oh Santa' and 'Christmas Time Is In the Air Again.' Her final 'The Late Late Show' performance came on the same day she released the updated version of the iconic 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' music video as the 25th-anniversary celebration of its release.
