Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey was born to Patricia Carey (born: Patricia Hickey), an opera singer and voice coach & Alfred Roy Carey, an aeronautical engineer, in Huntington, Long Island, New York, on 27 March 1970. Her mum, of Irish descent, was of African & Venezuelan descent, and her father. Mariah attended Harborfields High School in Greenlawn. Mariah made her debut with “Mariah Carey” which entered at # 73 in June 1990 but reached # 1 on August 4, 1990. Her debut album, self-titled in 1990, went multiplatinum and spawned an unprecedented four consecutive # 1 singles: “Dream of Life,” “Life Takes Time,” “Someday” and “I Don’t Wanna Cry,” contributing to the Grammy Awards for Best New Artist and Best Female Vocalist.

Her album titled Music Box in 1993 went ten times in platinum. She made music history on 30 September 1995. Her 1995 Daydream album single “Fantasy” debuted at # 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, making her the first female artist to make her Number One debut in the U.S. Her other song from Daydream, “One Perfect Day” stayed at the top of the charts for 16 weeks. She is the first singer to release that many # 1 hits and albums since The Beatles. With “Heartbreaker,” the first single from her 1999 album Rainbow and also her 14 # 1 hit, in each year of the 1990s she was the first artist to top the charts, and with “Heartbreaker” at the top of the charts of the Billboard at her 60th week, she pushed ahead of The Beatles‘s 59-week record as the only artist with the most cumulative weeks spent atop Billboard’s Hot 100 Singles chart.

Mariah Carey  second single “Thank God I Find You” from her Rainbow album also became her 15th # 1 after “Heartbreaker.” “We Belong Together” was her 16th # 1 hit from her 2005 album The Emancipation of Mimi, which was also her first # 1 without any guest artists since her song “My Everything” (also a # 1 hit) took the top spot in May 1998. Also from her 2005 album Emancipation of Mimi’s, the song “Don’t Worry About Us” was her 17th # 1 hit, matching her to 17 # 1 singles by Elvis Presley. Three more Grammy Awards were received from Mimi’s album The Emancipation. Mariah Carey is the most influential female artist in the history of music and the only female artist to have the most # 1 singles and albums

 

The solo “Touch My Heart” was her 18th # 1 hit in April 2008, putting her ahead of 17 # 1 singles by Elvis Presley. Currently, she is the first celebrity to release as many numbers one hits since The Beatles and the only singer currently expected to replace them.
