Mariah Carey spread some Christmas cheer over the holiday break when she hosted a special party for 35 underprivileged children in Colorado.
The singer held the event – which featured a plethora of Christmas magic such as jugglers, magicians, storytellers and more – in the Aspen Recreation Center. Carey and husband Nick Cannon even organized for Santa to put in an appearance – and he didn’t mind posing for pictures with the famous couple.
“This is an opportunity [the children] haven’t had before,” said Judé Liguori-Oliver, child protection services administrator for the city and county of Denver, told the Aspen Times. "Many of these kids haven’t been out of Denver. A lot of them haven’t been in the mountains.
“It was just all about the kids. We are very grateful. Mariah is a celebrity that gives back.”
