Mariah Carey Biography

Mariah Carey (born March 27, 1970 in Huntington, New York) is an American Pop and R&B singer, songwriter, actress, and record producer. Making her debut in 1990, she became the most successful and best-selling artist of the 90s, according to Billboard magazine and the World Music Awards. In 2000, the World Music Awards show also declared her as the best-selling female recording artist of all time.

Notable for her distinctive singing style, Carey makes use of a five-octave vocal range and frequent use of melismas and other ornamentation. During the 90s, she released numerous number one hits on Columbia Records, run by then husband Tommy Mottola, several of which broke chart records.

By the turn of the millennium, however, Carey's popularity with critics and the public had entered decline, and she was dropped from her new record label following a highly-publicised emotional breakdown and an unsuccessful foray into film. In 2005, Carey returned to the forefront of R&B music with her multi-platinum album The Emancipation of Mimi, which spawned her sixteenth number one single, "We Belong Together".
