Mariah Carey Biography (Wikipedia)

Mariah Carey (born March 27, 1969 or 1970) is an American singer, songwriter, actress, record producer, and entrepreneur. Referred to as the "Songbird Supreme" by the Guinness World Records, she is noted for her five-octave vocal range, power, agility, melismatic style, and signature use of the whistle register. She rose to fame in 1990 after signing to Columbia Records and releasing her eponymous debut album, which topped the US Billboard 200 for eleven consecutive weeks. Soon after, Carey became the first and only artist to have their first five singles reach number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, including, "Vision of Love", "Love Takes Time", "Someday", "I Don't Wanna Cry", and "Emotions".. Vision of Love is often credited as popularising the use of melisma in mainstream Pop and R&B music.

Carey married Sony Music head Tommy Mottola in 1993. Shortly after Carey became the label's highest-selling act with the worldwide success of follow-up album Music Box (1993), which sold 28 million copies & remains the highest selling album of her career. It was certified diamond & became one of the best-selling albums of all time. Her major success continued with Merry Christmas (1994), eventually becoming the best-selling Christmas album of all time. Carey then released Daydream (1995), it was certified diamond for selling over 20 million copies worldwide.
