Blooming Mariah Carey and her baby bump welcome in the holidays with the Obamas at a Christmas concert



Mariah Carey's bump was neatly tied up with the bow on her long red dress

A pregnant and glowing Mariah Carey helped President Barack Obama and his family ring in the holidays Sunday night at the annual 'Christmas in Washington' concert.
Carey showed off her growing baby bump in a long red dress.

She is expecting her first child with husband Nick Cannon.
The festivities, hosted by comedian Ellen DeGeneres, took place at the National Building Museum and benefited the Children's National Medical Center.

The entertainers, including Glee star Matthew Morrison, sang Christmas songs and performed for the Obama family — including first lady Michelle, daughters Malia, 12, and Sasha, 9, and First Grandmother Marian Robinson — in a packed auditorium.

DeGeneres' wife Portia de Rossi beamed from her front-row seat by the First Family.
At the end the Obamas joined all the evening's performers on stage for a rendition of 'Hark! The Herald Angels Sing'

In remarks to the crowd, Obama talked about the story of Jesus' birth.
'The story and message speak to us today. We are called to love each other as we love ourselves,' Obama said from the stage, with his family surrounding him.

He cited the tougher circumstances for many people these holidays.

'We pray for our troops. We remember those who are out of work and struggling to get by,' Obama said, urging people to show 'charity, passion and goodwill' to their neighbors.

President Obama, wife Michelle and daughters Sasha and Malia joined the stars on stage, including Glee's Matthew Morrison, Mariah Carey, and Ellen DeGeneres, for a carol

'From our family to yours, happy holidays and Merry Christmas.'

Early in event the Obama family also offered presents from the White House to a group of young children dressed as elves, who placed them under a Christmas tree.

'Ho, ho, ho. Fantastic elves,' Obama said as the group posed for pictures.
The concert will air Friday on cable channel TNT.
