American singer Mariah Carey is number one in the U.S. music charts with her song "All I Want For Christmas Is You". The festive best seller was first released 25 years ago. When the song first came out in 1994, it was on a record with other songs, so it could not be in Billboard's Hot 100 chart. Rules have been changed over the years. The song has got near number one several times. Ms Carey was very happy her song finally hit the top spot. She tweeted: "We did it". The song is also the most streamed song in the U.K. on the music streaming service Spotify.

Mariah Carey was born in 1969. She is a singer, songwriter, actor, record producer, and businesswoman. She is the solo artist with the most number ones in the U.S. chart. She has 19 number ones - just one behind The Beatles. The Guinness World Records book said she has a unique voice. She can sing in five different octaves. "All I Want For Christmas Is You" is an essential tune at Christmas parties and family get-togethers. Wikipedia said: "It is an up-tempo love song that includes...heavy back-up vocals and synthesizers....It is the most played holiday song in modern history."
