Mariah Carey says it’s time to get into the holiday spirit…
The 54-year-old half-Afro-Venezuelan Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, the self-proclaimed Queen of Christmas, has officially declared the start of the holiday season, and she’s celebrating with some new merchandise.
The white shirt feature a photo of the “All I Want for Christmas Is You” singer in a festive outfit, with “It’s Time!” written across the top.
The shirt is now available to purchase for $35 on Amazon here.
At the stroke of midnight on November 1, Carey bid farewell to the Halloween season and hello to the holidays with an annual seasonal kick-off video. The singer posted an elaborate 35-second video of a frozen vault with a red countdown clock above it that reads “November 1 12:00.” The vault opens to reveal a number of Carey’s assistants dressed in in a variety of scary masks using hair dryers to help Carey defrost from the block of ice.
Carey ultimately cracks open the ice by belting out “It’s time!” in her signature whistle note and emerges from the frost in a red and white Santa-style costume.
Monroe and Moroccan also joined in on the video’s festivities and dance around with their mother as Carey’s iconic holiday hit, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” officially blasts out for the first time this season.
Carey is slated to hit the road for her 13-date Merry Christmas One and All! tour on Nov. 15 in Highland, CA and ride her sleigh across North American until a December 17 gig at Madison Square Garden in New York.
