The best-selling female artist of all time - Mariah Carey has made an indelible impact on the global music industry and audiences everywhere. As a singer and songwriter, she has been recognized with five Grammy Awards, nine American Music Awards, Billboard's "Artist of the Decade" Award and the World Music Award for "World's Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium".
Carey's most recent album is also her most intimate. Released in April 2005, ‘The Emancipation of Mimi' strongly resonated with audiences, becoming that year's best-selling album in the U.S. and selling more than eight million units worldwide to date.
With an angelic allure and a vocal intensity never heard before, Mariah Carey exploded upon the scene with her self-titled album in 1990 and along with an armful of hits it brought her two Grammy Awards. Carey continued her early success with a series of singles from her subsequent 'Emotions' (1991) and 'MTV Unplugged' (1992) albums that consistently placed her at the top of the charts.
With the 1993 release of ‘Music Box', Mariah Carey produced her most commercially successful album to date selling an astounding 30 million units. She hit a new milestone with a holiday album, ‘Merry Christmas' and the next year, with the release of 'Daydream' Mariah Carey made history when the single ‘Fantsy' debuted at No. 1.
In 1998, eight years after her debut, Carey released '#1's', a compilation of her chart-topping hits. The album also included a new song, "When You Believe" (from the film The Prince of Egypt), a duet with Whitney Houston that paired two of the most successful female recording artists in pop history. ‘Rainbow' followed in 1999 with startling success and the multi-platinum ‘Charmbracelet' was 2002's offering.
Blessed with a stunning five-octave range and signature vocal abilities, the singularly talented superstar continues to reach new heights of artistic growth and popularity.
