Holiday Special: “The Keys of Christmas” with Mariah Carey, DJ Khaled and More!

The Keys of Christmas special takes YouTube creator Rudy Mancuso (@rudymancuso) on a magical journey to find the true meaning of the holidays and features performances by Mariah Carey, Ciara, DJ Khaled, Fifth Harmony, Nicky Jam, Bebe Rexha, Alex Aiono and many more.

It’s good to have the fun back in our day as Holiday Season bears down full speed and who better to lead the way than Mariah Carey, DJ Khaled, Ciara and the rest of the exciting cast of performers. The Keys of Christmas which premiered yesterday Dec 19, is a full service edutainment piece replete with classic music, life lessons and inspiration. The Scrooge-like character Rudy Mancuso seems to be getting SMASHED by “Murphy’s Law” and giving up on the spirit of the Holidays. Needless to say, he’s pulled out of his dark place and all ends well. Perfectly produced and presented #imho ~ JD
