Her song has become associated with the Christmas and continues to reign supreme over the holiday.
On Friday, Mariah Carey was served with a copyright lawsuit filed in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, regarding her classic Christmas song “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
Andy said he co-wrote and recorded a song called “All I Want For Christmas Is You” a few years before MC released her hit single of the same name, according to TMZ, who broke the news first.
Mariah made her own version with her own video in 1994 and according to him, her team never had the authorization to use that title. The lawsuit also cited “Queen of Christmas” co-writer Walter Afanasieff.
