This merry rendition of “All I Want for Christmas Is You”, which ushers in the joyous anticipation of Christmas and the yearning for our loved ones to share it with us, is presented by the One Voice Children’s Choir.
The song was written by Mariah Carey and is included on her fourth studio album as well as her first album dedicated to the Christmas season, Merry Christmas (1994). On October 29, 1994, the song was presented to the public as the first single taken from the album.
The whole process of writing and composing this very hit song took about fifteen minutes in total.
The song has gained widespread popularity ever since it was first made available.
It topped the US Billboard Hot 100 for the first time in 2019, 25 years after its initial release, and it still holds the record for the longest journey ever made by a song to reach the top of the charts.
It is also the holiday song that has sold the most copies by a female artist.
It is the first Christmas song to ever be awarded the diamond certification, which indicates that it has sold more than 10 million copies in the United States alone.
The joyful expressions on the children’s cheeks as they take turns singing the choruses make the music video of the children’s choir an absolute joy to see. The youngsters sing the song at a lively speed while the piano provides a beautiful accompaniment.
