Video: Mariah Carey & John Legend – ‘When Christmas Comes’

Mariah Carey makes it a family affair in the festive video for “When Christmas Comes,” her soulful duet with John Legend, which originally appeared on her 2010 holiday album Merry Christmas II You. The pop songbird’s loved ones gather around the piano as she belts out the James Poyser-produced tune with Legend.

The Sanaa Hamri-directed clip, which was filmed at Mariah and Nick’s Beverly Hills home, features footage from “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” Mimi frolicks in the snow and cooks up a holiday meal for her guests, while her adorable twins Monroe and Moroccan, dogs, and Santa Claus suit-wearing husband all join the festivities.

“I wanted this to be the most fun, family Christmas,” explained Mariah. “It’s like a soulful family Christmas song and yet I wanted to add all the elements of anything magical that could happen at Christmas.”
