Mariah would have to be the Queen of Christmas music! I purchased the “All I Want For Christmas” cd back in 1994 and I knew it was an instant classic. This musical special is delightful with great singing with a few special guest stars.
What a wonderful family movie for this Season! The story of Jesus’ birth is told in an animated version beautifully done. Laughs, great music and a good time for all in this all-star ensemble (voiced) cast.

Follow my movie reviews via FB M.U.S.E. Enthusiasts:
5 stars is all I’m saying about this movie. Fabulous ensemble cast, great storyline (from the book) and well acted! There’s so much that I can write that I liked about this movie but it would be pages long. Forest Whitaker (Cecil Gaines) should definitely get an Oscar nomination as should the movie. Oprah returns to the big screen and holds her own as Gloria Gaines. Honorable mentions are Elijah Kelley as Charlie Gaines…he added humor to the film; Cuba Gooding Jr. as Carter Wilson; Alan Rickman and Jane Fonda as President and Mrs. Reagan; Mariah Carey has a small role yet it’s intense. Honestly, I thought all of the presidential performances were great. A few emotional scenes. Must see movie!
I’m so proud of Elijah! I had the opportunity of meeting him several years ago and working with him on events in Detroit. <
I got a pic with Oprah at Disneyworld’s Grand Floridian Resort where she was staying (I was next door at the Polynesian). That was my first time getting a chance to talk with her for a few minutes (I attended many tapings of the OWS before she retired).
