It’s been 25 years since the queen of pop accomplished something very few modern musical artists have by creating an original hit holiday song. Now you can learn all about how Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas” came to life in a mini documentary on Amazon.

Carey revealed the trailer for the new Amazon documentary, Mariah Carey is Christmas! in an Instagram post captioned. “Can’t wait to share this with you guys!”

The documentary follows the story of Carey’s now famous song and features interviews with the star herself as well as producer Randy Jackson. The trailer shows Jackson admitting that he initially thought a modern holiday song could be this much of a hit. Carey is shown saying, “I just remember where I was coming from, wanting it to feel like a classic. It was an accomplishment for me that I was really proud of.”

In honor of the anniversary Legacy Recordings also released Carey’s “Merry Christmas 25th Anniversary Deluxe Edition.” The compilation includes the original album and a disc featuring previously unreleased live tracks from her 1994 St. John The Divine Benefit Concert, rare remixes and a new rendition of the “Sugar Plum Fairy.”
