Jimmy Fallon, Mariah Carey and The Roots Unite for a New Take on a Holiday Classic

For me nothing says the holidays have arrived like hearing my favorite holiday songs on the radio. While I love them all (or most of them anyway) there’s one song in particular that gets me into the holiday spirit every time I hear it, and it never gets old.

Mariah singing “All I Want for Christmas is You” just might be a staple on everyone’s holiday playlist. Even my 8-year-old daughter loves the song. Her face lights up as soon as she hears the jingle bells ringing and gears up for a duet with non other than her (not-so) musically talented mother. So, imagine my excitement when I saw this take on the holiday classic, a love song that reminds you that presents aren’t as big of a deal as people. Be forewarned, watching this just might inspire you and your children to break out the instruments and create a rendition of your own.

Teachers, music lovers, and parents of budding musicians rejoice! A holiday song for the young and the young at heart, check out Mariah Carey, Jimmy Fallon, and the Roots performing “All I Want for Christmas is You” using classroom instruments after the jump!
