Mariah’s New Xmas Album; Rosie and Cyndi Tonight


Mariah Carey‘s new Christmas album, “Merry Christmas II You” is coming on November 2nd. I told you about this album first about six months ago. Mariah’s been working in the studio with Randy Jackson and a bunch of producers. The first single is called “Oh Santa.” The album is a mix of new songs and traditional ones. If all things are on track, by November 2nd Mariah should be as big as Santa herself! (And you know why.) There’s also, as I’ve said before, a new version of Mariah’s hit, “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” It’s the most played song on radio every December…

Tonight: Rosie O’Donnell’s big fundraiser tonight features a performance from Cyndi Lauper. Rosie’s Broadway Kids is always the best and most fun night of the year. Plenty of celebrities attending, and wait til you see Rosie’s Kids do their thing. The night’s proceeds go Rosie’s Maravel Center just west of Broadway. Call 914-579-1000.
