Mariah Carey was joined by John Legend for a performance at the Beacon Theatre in New York City, and she can’t stop gushing about it!
Mariah Carey is the unrivaled Queen of Christmas with her holiday albums, and of course, her song “All I want a for Christmas is You” becoming a holiday anthem in its own right. For the 2016 holidays, Carey is spreading good tidings with her famous holiday hit and other songs at the Beacon Theatre in New York, from December 7 to 17. Carey teased a surprise guest at the opening of the annual event as holiday festivities kicked off last night, as she performed with none other than John Legend! The duo performed Carey’s other Christmas hit from 2011, “When Christmas Comes.”
Carey took to her Instagram to gush about the dazzling performance on the first night of All I Want for Christmas Is You, A Night of Joy and Festivity, Carey’s annual holiday event at the Beacon Theatre. She posted a clip of her performance with Legend and also a photograph. Before the opening of the show, Carey had actually teased about a surprise guest, who ended up being John Legend, to both fans and Carey’s delight!
Another person delighted that these two great singers got to share the stage was John Legend’s wife, Chrissy Teigen. Back in June, Carey and Legend had a surprise performance at Carey’s Las Vegas show. This time, Carey is returning the love on her Instagram post. She gave a shout out to both Legend and Teigen and proclaimed her love for the supermodel. So much cuteness!
“When Christmas Comes” is from Carey’s second Christmas album, Merry Christmas II You (2010). She re-recorded the song with Legend as a duet in 2011, and it became an instant hit. Watch the music video for “When Christmas Comes” below!
