Mariah Carey is the most successful female singer-songwriter-producer in the history of music. Thanks to her poetic lyrics, irresistible melodies, and unmatched five octave vocal range, she has notched 18 #1 singles and sold over 66.5 million albums in the United States alone. In 2018, she released Caution, her most critically-acclaimed album to date. Not to mention the fact that Christmas 2019 marks 25 years since the release of her game-changing “All I Want For Christmas is You,” which just might become her 19th #1 single. Next year, she will celebrate 30 years in the music industry, but shows no signs of slowing down.
At The 97, we love Mariah for all of those reasons, and more. Most of all, though, we love her for the phenomenal, inspiring woman she is. Her lyrics, melodies and vocals provided the soundtrack to our lives and for that we are forever grateful to this inimitable Queen. We go back like babies and pacifiers, “just for the nostalgia, ya gotta say it!”
