Hark! The herald Mimi sings.
It’s the gift that nobody wanted but didn’t realize they needed until it arrived: Mariah Carey has gracefully blessed the internet this holiday season with a series of Christmas song covers (festive music videos included).
In this three-part series, Carey’s doling out her personalized stylings of “Here Comes Santa Claus,” “O Holy Night,” and “Joy to the World.” She’s already uploaded the first cover to her site, Mariah’s World, and holy hell, it’s phenomenal. We can’t embed the video, unfortunately, but these GIFs say it all.
Well I’ll be damned if this isn’t enough to melt the heart of even the coldest Scrooge. Mimi stans can expect the following two videos to drop Saturday and Sunday, also on her website.
Hopefully Carey’s triple-hitter of a gift will help wash the sound of her notorious “All I Want for Christmas is You” isolated vocals from memory.
