With all the stress given to Mariah Carey for her performance at the Rockefeller Center tree lighting ceremony, let’s go back and listen to a more relaxed, fun version of Mariah singing that same song.
You can see Mariah is confident. She doesn’t try to stretch her range nor strain her voice. She shows control.
Mariah, this is why we love your song.
It kind of reminds me why this song is so popular around the holidays anyway. It’s the whole sitting around with friends, just having fun and enjoying the season sort of thing.
