Mariah Carey at Live 8

Born on March 27, 1970, Mariah Carey was one of the best-selling female artists of the 1990's.

Mariah was the daughter of a former opera singer and vocal coach. Rumor has it that her name stems from a song in a popular musical "Paint Your Wagon". Her mother apparently liked the song titled "They Call the Wind Mariah".

Mariah grew up in Long Island, New York amidst racial tension. Her mother Patricia is Irish and her father Alfred is Venezuelan and Black. According to Carey, their household was met with racial slurs, hostility and even violence (Mariah claimed in the early days, someone burned a cross on their lawn, her dogs were poisoned, their car was blown up, and a shot was fired through the kitchen window during mealtime). Her parents split up when Mariah was only three years old. To make matters worse, her mother was forced to work multiple jobs in order to make ends meet.

From a very early age, Mariah knew that she had a knack for singing. She looked to her mother for inspiration. It was Carey's mothers great love; support and confidence that helped mold the young Mariah. She first performed in public when she was just six years old and first began writing songs when she was in grade school.

During her high school years, Carey didn't concentrate a good deal on her education. She would frequently skip class; and write songs. In fact her nickname at school was "Mirage", because she was never in class. She dreamt about becoming a famous singer.

Mariah Carey graduated Harborfields High School in Greenlawn in 1987 and focused all her attention on music. Before she got her big break, Mariah finished 500 hours of beauty school and even worked coat check girl, a waitress and as a hair sweeper in a salon.

Carey moved to New York City and her big break came as a backing vocalist on a studio session with dance-pop singer Brenda K. Starr. Allegedly it was Star who handed Carey's demo tape to Columbia Records head Tommy Mottola at a party. According to legend, Tommy listened to the tape in his limousine while driving home that same evening. He was so struck by Carey's talent that he doubled back to the party to track her down. She was signed to CBS records.

At age 20, Mariah's career really began with the release of her debut album in 1990. Her heavily promoted album was a chart-topping success, launching four number one singles: "Someday," "Vision of Love," "Love Takes Time," and "I Don't Wanna Cry." Her overnight success earned Grammy awards as Best New Artist and Best Female Vocalist. The self titled album "Mariah Carey" was certified 8x RIAA-Platinum, sold 12 million copies worldwide.

Carey soon rose to superstardom on the strength of her stunning five-octave voice; a resilient talent who moved easily from slick ballads to hip-hop-inspired dance-pop music. She offered a fresh new sound that distinctively included R&B, Soul and Pop into one melodical body.

1992 saw the release of Mariah's second album, "Emotions." This produced Mariah's 5th #1 hit "Emotions," and gained several awards and nominations. On March 17th of that same year, Carey sang on MTV's acoustic concert special "Unplugged." A recording of the seven songs she performed was released as an EP entitled "Mariah Carey: MTV Unplugged." Only one of the seven tracks was a song not on one of MC's first two albums: the cover of The Jackson 5's "I'll Be There." This album itself was an added success. It sold 5 million copies worldwide and was certified 3x Platinum in the United States.

In 1993, Mariah offered up "Music Box." Her most successful to-date, Carey's third studio album sold an astonishing 24 million copies throughout the world and was certified 10x RIAA Platinum.

Mariah followed up with Music Box and 2 other top hits, "Dreamlover" and "Hero."

She next released Merry Christmas, Daydream, Butterfly, Rainbow, Charmbracelet, Glitter, and more recently The emancipation of Mimi.

Although the last couple of years have not been as bright as her very first, Mariah has been able to show the world that she is a lasting performer. The one thing that no one will be able to take away is the fact that Mariah Carey is the only artist to have had a #1 single for every year of the 1990's. An outstanding achievement even now.

Carey's devoted fan base (who sometimes go by the name lambs) have continued to buy her singles in the thousands and there is still something very special about this woman.
