Great news, DIVAs! LGBTQI musical sensation Lucy Spraggan has shared a cover of Mariah Carey’s Christmas classic, All I Want For Christmas Is You. Hold tight – the festive season just got hella queer!
Released via her own label, Little Pig Music, Lucy is bringing a queer take to a seasonal essential. “I’d been thinking about doing a Christmas cover but couldn’t think of the right song. A friend suggested I do a song that is as far away from my normal sound as I could get – All I Want For Christmas Is You. I read the lyrics and realised that it is actually a really wonderful love song and so I thought: ‘I know what to do with this!’ I’m not sure I can match the red mini Xmas ski suit Mariah wore in the video for the original…but never say never!”, shares Lucy.
Working on the follow-up to fifth studio album Choices, released in February 2021 and charting at #5 in the Official Albums Chart, fans needn’t wait too long for another dose of Lucy Spraggan magic. All of her albums have charted in the UK Top 30, rendering her a hallmark of LGBTQI visibility in the music industry. Keep those eyes peeled.
