Mariah Carey made the Christmas merrier when she released 'All I Want For Christmas Is You'
The song has received three Guinness World Records. It includes 'Most weeks in the UK singles Top 10 chart for Christmas song'.
Walter Fanasieff narrated the story as to how Mariiah and her ex-husband Tommy Mottola wanted to revive the sixties, old rock 'n' roll Christmas spirit.
Carey wrote the song for her love for Christmas. She got the inspiration for the R&B and gospel undertone, because she was a radio fanatic. During the studio session, Mariah sang "I don't want a lot for Christmas". To this, Walter played a rock 'n' roll, and this is how the song came about.
Today, the artist earns $3 million per year for the song. So, from the time it was released till 2021, she has earned $72 million from the song
