Biography

Huntington, New York, United States (1990 – present)

Mariah Carey (born March 27, 1970 in Huntington, New York, United States) is an American pop and R&B singer, songwriter, record producer, actress, model and entrepreneur. She made her recording debut in 1990 under the guidance of Columbia Records executive Tommy Mottola, and became the first recording artist to have her first five singles top the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. Following her marriage to Mottola in 1993, a series of hit records established her position as Columbia’s highest-selling act. According to Billboard magazine, she was the most successful artist of the 1990s in the United States.

Following her separation from Mottola in 1997, Carey introduced elements of hip hop into her album work, to much initial success, but her popularity was in decline when she left Columbia in 2001. She signed to Virgin Records but was paid to leave the label the following year after a highly publicized physical and emotional breakdown, as well as the poor reception given to Glitter, her film and soundtrack project. In 2002, Carey signed with Island Records, and after a relatively unsuccessful period, she returned to the top of pop music in 2005.

Carey was named the best-selling female pop artist of the millennium at the 2000 World Music Awards. She has the most number-one singles for a solo artist in the United States next to Diana Ross (eighteen; second artist overall behind The Beatles), where, according to the Recording Industry Association of America, she is the third best-selling female artist and sixteenth overall recording artist. In addition to her commercial accomplishments, Carey has earned five Grammy Awards, and is well-known for her vocal range, power, melismatic style, and use of the whistle register.

    Está mais do que na hora da fan base lamb começar a esquecer o passado e se unir para vivenciar o presente da Diva Mariah Carey! Aquela mocinha pura e ingênua do início dos anos 90 não existe mais e aquela piriguete de Butterfly, Rainbow e Glitter também já morreu! Não é a toa que ela é conhecida como a Butterfly Do Pop e hoje ela se encontra numa zona de conforto, onde sabe que já é Rainha e aclamada como lenda! Passando por todas essas fases, ela não passa mais do que o reflexo de uma artista que transforma a sua vida em música e hoje está mais fortalecida do que nunca! Mãe, esposa, bilionária, já trabalhou e suou muito pra conquistar tudo isso e ninguém jamais será capaz de derruba-la nunca mais! Não importa se ela se veste inadequadamente aos olhos e alguns, afinal de contas, apesar de gordinha, ela sabe que ainda dá um bom caldo! Gordas também são sexys! Tire isso da cabeça que ser gordo é algo feio! Quem inventou isso? Mariah Carey já é história! [2]
