Sure Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” is inescapable this season, even topping Billboard’s Holiday Songs chart… But the instaclassic is getting a funtastic makeover.
Backstage before a recent taping of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the 42-year-old part-Venezuelan singer, host Jimmy Fallon and his backing band, The Roots, put a new spin on the Christmas classic by performing the song using classroom instruments.
To increase the adorable quotient: a quartet of kids pop up throughout the performance to sing backup.
Even with the unusual instruments like a ukulele and xylophone, the song comes together quite nicely in delightful harmony.
It’s Fallon’s latest creative re-do of a Latina artist’s song, following his take on Christina Aguilera‘s “Your Body,” featuring office supplies.
