If you don’t want a lot for Christmas but there is just one thing you need, chances are it’s Mariah Carey’s new festive movie, A Christmas Melody.
Airing on December 18 on Hallmark Channel, Mariah’s directorial debut is an “inspiring” story about a single mother, played by Lacey Chabert (ahem, Gretchen Weiners) who moves back to her hometown with her young daughter. Said young daughter finds it hard to adjust to her new surroundings and leans on her music teacher, played by Mariah, to help her write a song for the “annual Christmas Variety Show”, which we’re sure will bring all the feels.
If you want to see what you’re in for, or just check out Mariah in a debatable pearls and Adidas tracksuit get-up, you can watch the trailer for yourself below. We’re sure it will be just as good, if not better, than Glitter back in 2001. You heard it here first.
