Happy Birthday Mariah Carey

One American Singer and Songwriter celebrated a birthday today, March 27th. At the age of 21 years of age she signed with Columbia Records and released her debut album, Mariah Carey (1990) This album would be the first with 4 number one singles to hit U.S. billboard hot 100 chart.

  • Vision of Love

  • Love Takes Time

  • Someday 

  • I Dont Wanna Cry 

Carey was married to Sony Music Head Tommy Mottola. She became the label's highest selling act in the mid 1990s. Carey would divorce Mottola and change her image and add a bit more hip hop into her music.

In 2000 Mariah Carey would sign a new contract with Virgin Records and release a film and soundtrack Glitter. It all seems a bit too much as Carey would suffer a physical and emotional breakdown. She would be hospitalized with exhaustion. After the decline she eventually would come back topping the best selling album in 2005 with We Belong Together

Carey has sold more than 200 million records worldwide. The third best selling female artist in the United States with 63.5 million albums. VH1 named Carey was ranked #2 out of 100 greatest female artist in music history. Her winning list includes 5 grammies, 19 world music awards, 10 american music awards, and 14 billboard music awards. Mariah Carey continues to influence young singers.
