About Mariah Carey:
With a distinct five-octave vocal range, prolific songwriting and producing
talent, Carey has defined the modern pop performance. As a
singer/songwriter/producer, she has been recognized with five Grammy Awards,
nine American Music Awards, Billboard's "Artist of the Decade" Award, the World
Music Award for "World's Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium," and
BMI's "Icon Award" to name a few. Mariah has written seventeen out of her
eighteen Billboard No. 1 singles and has two consecutive and unparalleled
Billboard "Song of the Decade" titles "One Sweet Day" (with Boyz II Men) and
"We Belong Together," further marking her massive presence on the charts since
her 1990 song debut "Vision of Love." Mariah became the second artist in
history and the first female performer to have a song debut at No. 1 with
"Fantasy" (1995), the groundbreaking collaboration with O.D.B. of the
innovative rap group Wu-Tang Clan. Carey's original holiday classic "All I Want
For Christmas is You" redefined its place in pop culture as one of the greatest
holiday hits of all time when it reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts in 2011,
seventeen years after its debut. Mariah's influential and stellar contribution
to the music industry spans multiple genres and is showcased through a
multifaceted hit catalogue as well as a long list of diverse collaborations.
Carey's ongoing impact transcends the music industry and has left an
indelible imprint upon the world at large. She recently made a substantial mark
in film with her critically acclaimed role as a social worker in "Precious,"
the 2009 film based on the novel "Push," by Sapphire. A Congressional Award
recipient, Carey has generously donated her time and energy to a range of
domestic and international philanthropic causes near to her heart including The
Fresh Air Fund/Camp Mariah (a retreat where inner-city children explore career
development), Save the Music Foundation and Make-a-Wish Foundation among
Mariah is currently in the studio, writing, recording and
executive-producing her next album for Island Def Jam Music Group; the lead
single "Triumphant (Get 'Em)," is now available on iTunes. Recently Carey made
worldwide headlines with the exciting news that she will join the judges' panel
of FOX's American Idol when the series returns in 2013.
