April 9, 2015 | D&LMariah Carey is known worldwide as a talented singer and one of her Christmas songs that we all know of is ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ – which has sold 14 million copies worldwide. Now, if you’re wondering why we’re talking about the festive season when we’re only in April, it’s because of the news that has recently broke about the R&B ‘diva’.
There are talks of Mariah directing her very own Christmas movie! Now, Mariah is no stranger to the big screen, as she has featured in movies including Glitter, Precious and The Butler and has proved that she is more than capable of acting out a role when given to her.
This new movie will see Mariah in a new light, as she takes you on a musical journey back into time. “It’s a little bit about how music can take you back in time,” said Jonathan Shestack, producer of the movie, alongside Mariah’s close friend, Brett Ratner. “It will be everything you hope a Christmas movie with Mariah Carey would be.”
Franchise New Line Cinema are currently working on the new film and it is also believed that Mariah will feature on the soundtrack. It’s not yet confirmed if other artists will be joining her on the new album, but more information is expected to be revealed over the next few months.
Considering how successful Mariah – “the empress of Christmas” – continues to be after 25 years in the music business and gaining continuous airtime every Christmas with her 1994 hit, she is certainly onto something here with this upcoming project!
We look forward to watching this movie develop.
Here’s a throwback track with ‘Honey’.
