By Sentinel News Service
Published November 16, 2018

Mariah Carey stopped by Pandora’s NYC office to chat about Caution and was presented with a Billions plaque for having close to 5 billion spins.  In addition, she’s Pandora’s all-time leader for holiday songs with over 308 million spins alone for her classic “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”

While her holiday song is tops on Pandora, we asked what were some of her holiday favorites and she replied “Some of my favorite holiday songs are Nat King Cole’s “The Christmas Song,” I love the Jackson 5’s whole album and I love Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas.”  There are so many!  Phil Spector has an incredible Christmas album and there’s the Motown Christmas album.  Lots of good Christmas music playing in my house all season long.”
