Mariah Carey performs at the 81st Annual Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting Pre-Tape at Rockefeller Center on Dec. 3, 2013 in New York City.

Go ahead and call Dec. 19 "Mariah Carey Day."

The singer announced that Hallmark would be premiering the musical event Mariah Carey’s Merriest Christmas on that day, along with the previously announced Christmas TV movie she's directing.

Carey will sing holidays classics, including a duet with Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds. Emmy-winner Kelsey Grammer and Billy Gardell (Mike & Molly) will also perform in the one-hour special, which immediately follows the premiere of A Christmas Melody, Carey's Hallmark movie she directed and co-stars in.

Mariah Carey's Merriest Christmas will also have A Christmas Melody cast members Lacey Chabert, Brennan Elliott and Fina Strazza appearing to share their “holiday memories and experiences from working with Mariah on-set during production of the movie,” according to a release.

Hallmark apparently heard your pleas, so turn up "All I Want for Christmas Is You" and plan on a whole night of Carey holiday fun.
