Queen of the American Dream: Mariah Carey

Alejandro Holnes grew up listening to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You”. Growing up in Panama, the singer’s hit song brought joy. Nearly 30 years later, it still does; it’s one of the most popular songs of the season. Mariah Carey opened her Christmas show with a big-band-style arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker”. She glided across the stage in a sparkling ball gown and open-toed stilettos. The audience heard at least six languages, saw many same-sex couples.
