Name: Mariah Carey
Birth Date: March 27, 1970
Birth Place: Long Island, New York, USA
was born on March 27, 1970, in Long Island,
New York, to parents Patricia and Alfred. Unfortunately,
her parents divorced when she was only three
years old. As a result of her Irish/African-American/Venezuelan
descent, Mariah encountered some racial discrimination
while growing up.
Carey was raised in a poverty-stricken home
and her mother was forced to work multiple jobs
in order to make ends meet. Conveniently enough,
it was Mariah's mom who noticed her daughter's
vocal talents .
Mariah Carey has one of the best voices in pop
music (or hip-hop, depending on your opinion),
combined with one of the best attitudes. She
isn't as innocent as she once marketed herself
to be, but we have nothing against bad girls.
As the saying goes, "all that glitters
is gold," and Mariah's been producing gold
since her first release. She was one of the
world's top recording artists throughout the
1990s, setting records for most No. 1 singles
by a female artist (she has 15), and most consecutive
weeks at No. 1 with "One Sweet Day,"
her collaboration with Boyz II Men (the single
still holds that record). Her chart accomplishments
resulted in Billboard magazine naming her "Artist
of the Decade" for the '90s.
Mariah Carey's rise to glory began in 1990 with
her hit song "Vision of Love." After
several successful follow-up albums, she has
grown to become a household name, as well as
a diva of our era.
After a few years in relative obscurity, Mariah
burst back onto the music scene in April 2005
with her 10th studio album, The Emancipation
of Mimi (the second album for Island Def Jam).
Her first single, "It's Like That,"
exploded onto the charts, and the album itself
sold more copies -- about 404,000 -- in its
first week than any of her previous albums.
As her latest album continues to climb the charts,
Mariah is proving that she's back and here to
In 2005, she was back on the big screen with
roles in State Property 2 and The Sweet Science.
Mariah Carey compared her life to a wild roller
coaster ride to start her show Tuesday night
at the Turning Stone Resort and Casino Event
The analogy came complete with a big-screen
depiction of what might be the biggest twisting,
turning, rising and dipping amusement park thriller
"If you don't get on the ride, you won't
experience the adventure," Carey's voice
told the crowd.
And what a spectacle her show turned out to
be, with plenty of ups to more than balance
a couple of dips.
To get the low points out of the way: Carey
started a half-hour later than the scheduled
time, and the crowd started to get restless.
Also, with costume changes, a three-song mini-set
in the middle for her friend Tre Lorenz and
breaks for her DJ to spin old school, she might
have spent as much of the 90-minute show time
off the stage as on.
But, oh, the upside of that 45 minutes on stage.
The costume changes ranged from a small black
outfit completed by 4-inch heels to start the
show to a yellow gown to a hip-hop style get-up
with black clam diggers adorned by a chain to
a more flowing aqua gown for the encore. Carey
wore a big smile with them all, appearing like
a celebrity who's currently at ease with her
Best of all, Carey's voice was pure and golden.
She easily reached her trademark high notes
that sound like a happy bird singing its morning
And the crowd loved hearing that voice, whether
it was belting out R&B hits from her latest
monster comeback album, 2005's "The Emancipation
of Mimi," or dipping into "Hero,"
the ballad she wrote in 1993, during her first
wave of huge success.
