Mariah Carey Lights Up NYC Skyline With 'All I Want for Christmas Is You' Empire State Building Light Show

Mariah Carey is teaming up with the Empire State Building and some of New York's iHeartRadio stations to celebrate the holidays by syncing a light show on the iconic tower to Carey's classic song "All I Want for Christmas Is You." 

Starting Monday (Dec. 19), the show will be live synced to radio broadcasts of the song on iHeartMedia New York's Z100, 103.5 KTU and 106.7 Lite fm at 7 p.m. every night through Dec. 25. The light show was designed by renowned lighting designer Marc Brickman. 

"I can see the Empire State Building from my apartment and it is one of my favorite buildings in the world," Carey said in a statement. "To have its iconic lights synched to my song is the perfect gift this holiday season."

Carey flipped the switch to unveil the new show at a lighting ceremony at the Empire State Building's Fifth Avenue lobby. Watch a video here:
