All Kelly Clarkson wants for Christmas is to sing her favorite holiday jingle, “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” No, not that one by Mariah Carey, but the 1989 track by Vince Vance & the Valiants.
Clarkson released her own rendition of it on Friday (Nov. 13), which complements her original Christmas duet “Under the Mistletoe” with Brett Eldredge that dropped down the chimney last month.
“I have been singing Vince Vance & the Valiants’ song ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ since I was a little kid,” Clarkson said in a press statement. “I always loved that it’s a ballad but the woman always sounded so rock ‘n’ roll with her raspy tone on the big notes. It has an old school vibe and is a little pop, country, and rock ‘n’ roll.”
