Mariah Carey, who will be bringing her live show Merry Christmas to All! to Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena on December 9 and 11, will be receiving recognition for her juggernaut Christmas classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” which is now certified Diamond in Canada. This is a spectacular feat for this song, which is part of the Christmas canon and further solidifies Carey’s status as an icon and legend.

“All I Want for Christmas Is You” is on the classic album Merry Christmas, originally released in 1994 by Columbia Records. Merry Christmas has also been certified 3x Platinum in Canada.

In Canada, “All I Want for Christmas Is You” hit the top of the Canadian Hot 100 chart for the first time in 2018; this was Carey’s eleventh #1 song in the country and was the first Christmas song to top the charts. It has been crowned #1 every year since, spending a total of four weeks at the top.

Carey will be presented with a plaque at her Toronto show on December 9.
