Mariah Carey and her daughter Monroe Cannon are fast becoming a legendary musical duo. On Dec. 20, CBS shared a clip from the singer’s Christmas special, “Merry Christmas to All,” shortly after it aired on the network, in which Carey and her 11-year-old sing their first-ever duet of “Away in a Manger.”
In the performance, the Queen of Christmas and her daughter wear matching puffy white gowns with crown-like headbands while seated on stage surrounded by festive decorations. The mother-daughter team continues to sing verses of “Away in a Manger” as the crowd cheers them on. At one point, they even whistle together, allowing Monroe to showcase the breadth of her musical abilities.
Though Monroe clearly inherited her mother’s musical talent, she’s still young, and Carey exudes a mix of protective and proud motherly energy throughout her performance. The ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ singer touches her daughter’s hair and smiles at her every time the 11-year-old starts to sing. The end result is a beautiful duet that shows how close Carey is to her children.
In addition to Monroe, Carey is also the mother of Moroccan, Monroe’s twin brother, both of whom she shares with Nick Cannon. While Moroccan has yet to perform a duet with his mother, he has shown he has star quality, just like the rest of his family. In July, he and his sister organized a runway show that turned out to be an elaborate skit showcasing the twins’ acting skills.
While no one knows what the future holds, there’s no telling where the twins will end up as Monroe and Moroccan continue to nurture their musical and acting talents. But one thing’s for sure, Monroe is already showing signs that she’s a mini Mimi, at least according to Carey’s fans.
Watch a clip of her sweet performance.
