Mariah Carey, the undisputed queen of Christmas, proves that she’s not only talented but also a gracious and supportive artist.

Mariah Carey sends Brenda Lee flowers after her iconic holiday hit “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” reaches number one on the charts, showing support and camaraderie in the music industry.
Brenda Lee, known for her timeless Christmas track, took to Instagram on Thursday to share Mariah’s thoughtful gift. The bouquet came with a handwritten note from Mariah herself, extending warm wishes for a Merry Christmas and offering heartfelt congratulations on the “historic #1” achievement.
This milestone for Brenda comes as no surprise to music enthusiasts who have followed the song’s journey. “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” has been steadily climbing the charts in recent years, and this week, it finally claimed the number one spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 list. It’s an impressive accomplishment for a song released way back in 1958. However, what’s more astonishing is that Brenda was only 13 years old when she recorded this timeless hit.
To celebrate the renewed success of her iconic song, Brenda recently released a long-awaited music video for “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree.” The video captures the festive spirit and showcases the enduring appeal of the holiday classic.
But Brenda’s love for performing her beloved track doesn’t stop there. She thrilled fellow passengers on a flight by serenading them with a live rendition of “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” over the plane’s intercom system. The impromptu performance left everyone aboard in high spirits and filled with holiday cheer.
It’s no secret that Mariah Carey’s holiday hit, “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” has dominated the charts and airwaves every holiday season. However, this year Mariah proves that she’s more than willing to share the spotlight with Brenda Lee and her classic track. Mariah’s kind gesture of sending flowers exemplifies the camaraderie and support within the music industry.
