Mariah Carey booking
Mariah Carey was born March 27, 1970, in Huntington, Long Island, New York, and began taking
voice lessons at age four. At 18 she signed with Columbia records, and her first album had four No. 1
singles, including “Vision of Love” and “I Don’t Wanna Cry.” She went on to produce several more
albums (later with other studios) and top singles, and is one of the best-selling female artists of all
Singer Mariah Carey was born March 27, 1970, in Huntington, Long Island, New York, to Alfred Roy
Carey, a Venezuelan aeronautical engineer; and Patricia Carey, a voice coach and opera singer. Has
two older siblings: a brother, Morgan, and a sister, Alison. Carey is known as one of the top “pop
divas” of the 1990s, having sold more than 80 million albums worldwide. Her voice spans more than
five octaves and she writes most of her own music. Carey’s parents divorced when she was 3 years
old. She stunned her mother by imitating her operatic singing as early as age two, and was given
singing lessons starting at age four. After graduating in 1987 from Harborfields High School in
Greenlawn, New York, Carey moved to Manhattan where she worked as a waitress, coat check girl,
and studied cosmetology while writing songs and actively pursuing a music career at night.
When she was 18 years old, Carey and her friend, singer Brenda K. Starr, went to a party hosted by
CBS Records. Starr convinced Carey to bring along one of her demo tapes. She intended to give the
tape to Columbia’s Jerry Greenberg, but Tommy Mottola, the president of Columbia Records (later
Sony), intercepted it before she could hand it to Greenberg. After listening to the tape on the way
home from the party, Mottola signed Carey immediately and set her to work on her first album, Mariah
Carey (1990) which included four No. 1 singles: “Vision of Love,” “Love Takes Time,” “Some Day,” and
“I Don’t Wanna Cry.” Her second album Emotions was released in 1992; the title track became her fifth
No. 1 single, and included hits “Can’t Let Go” and “Make it Happen.”
In March 1992, Carey appeared on MTV’s Unplugged. This performance was released as an album
and a home video, resulting in another No. 1 single (a cover of The Jacksons’ “I’ll Be There”). Her next
album Music Box (1993) cut back a bit on the lavish studio production techniques heard in her
previous albums, and included the No. 1 singles, “Dreamlover” and “Hero.” Her November 1994
release Merry Christmas combined traditional Christian hymns with new songs. In 1995 she released
Daydream; the first single “Fantasy” debuted at No. 1. It also included collaborations with R&B and
hip-hop artists, such as Wu-Tang Clan and Boyz II Men (“One Sweet Day”). Her 1997 album, Butterfly,
included 11 compositions written by Carey, and demonstrated her continued interest in hip-hop and
R&B, including the Sean “Puffy” Combs-produced “Honey,” her 12th No. 1 hit. Carey’s 1998 album,
#1′s, featured her 13 previous chart-topping singles as well as the Academy Award-nominated “The
Prince of Egypt (When You Believe),” a duet with fellow pop diva Whitney Houston.
In July 2001, Carey was admitted into a New York-area hospital and put under psychiatric care after
suffering what her publicists called a “physical and emotional collapse.” Carey had been preparing to
promote her upcoming feature film debut, Glitter, and its accompanying soundtrack album, but
cancelled all public appearances. The release of Glitter was subsequently pushed back from late
August to late September 2001. Carey was released from the hospital after two weeks.
In January 2002, Carey and EMI (the corporate owner of Virgin Records, with whom Carey had signed
a reported $80 million contract in April 2001) severed their relationship. Though the film and
soundtrack for Glitter failed to generate the desired box office and sales totals, Carey reportedly
walked away from Virgin with nearly $50 million as part of her severance agreement. In May 2002, she
signed a deal with Universal Music Group’s Island/Def Jam Records. In December 2002, Carey staged
a comeback with her eighth album, Charmbracelet, which debuted in third place on the charts. The
record’s accompanying tour, her first in more than three years, launched in June 2003.In 2012, Carey was chosen as a new judge for season 12 of the popular FOX television
show American Idol, taking a seat alongsideRandy Jackson, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban.
Carey has sold around 160 million albums worldwide. She is the third best-selling female artist of all
time, according to the Recording Industry Association of America. With 2008’s Touch My Body(from
her eleventh studio album E=MC²), Carey passed Elvis Presley to become second only to the
Beatles for the most No. 1 hit singles in the United States.
Outside of her music career, Carey is active in fundraising for The Fresh Air Fund, an independent
nonprofit agency that has provided free summer vacations to more than 1.6 million disadvantaged
New York City children since 1877.
