Mariah Carey officially kicked off the holiday season Thursday at the end of the traditional Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The diva – in a stunning magenta mermaid dress – means, umbrella in hand, her anthem All I want for Christmas is youAt the foot of a giant turkey set up at the entrance to a store in New York.
As she was surrounded by dancers dressed as Nutcrackers, her 11-year-old twins, Morocco and Monroe, emerged from two huge gift boxes placed behind the singer as the song ended.
The show allowed Mariah Carey to realize a dream. “My childhood dream came to life! I open for the one and only Santa Claus,” she wrote on Instagram this morning.
US magazine reported that Big Time Rush, Sean Paul, Paula Abdul, Jordin Sparks, Dionne Warwick, Betty Who and Fitz and the Tantrums also walked the stage during the televised event. A rolling stone.
For the holiday season, the American singer will perform at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto and Madison Square Garden in New York.
The annual Thanksgiving parade begins at 9 a.m. Thursday and winds 2.5 miles through the streets of the Big Apple. This tradition continues since 1924.
