Pop music icon Mariah Carey has recently revealed that she will have a role in the new Christian animated movie The Star. The "Emotions" singer will also be singing the movie's theme song which is also entitled "The Star."
Mariah Carey says: "I'm so excited to share the trailer for the new movie, The Star, in theatres this holiday season." The song plays in the background of the trailer with the lyrics including the line: "That's what Christmas means to me, my love."
The Affirm Films picture tells the story of the first Christmas through the perspective of the animals that traveled with Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem and witnessed Jesus' birth. The film includes voiceovers from A-list celebrities such as Kelly Clarkson, Tracy Morgan and Oprah Winfrey. Christopher Plummer plays the villainous King Herod while Mary and Joseph are played by Gina Rodriguez and Zachary Levi.
"This is such a clever and genius way to tell the real meaning of Christmas. I was honored to be a part of it," Perry, who plays the voice of a camel, said in a Facebook post of the movie's trailer.
