Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey Mariah Carey was born on March 27, 1970 in Long Island, New York. She is an American pop and R&B singer-songwriter, record producer, and occasional actress.

Biography and Career :

Mariah Carey's parents are Patricia Hickey (Irish-American) and Alfred Roy Carey (African-American / Venezuelan). As a multiethnic family, the Careys endured racial slurs, hostility, and sometimes violence, causing the family to frequently relocate throughout the New York and Rhode Island areas. The strain on the family led to the divorce of Mariah Carey's parents when she was three years old.

Spending much of her time at home alone, she turned to music as an outlet. Mariah Carey began singing at around the age of three, performing for the first time in public during elementary school, and was wri ting her own songs by junior high. Mariah Carey graduated from Harborfields High School in Greenlawn, New York, although she was frequently absent due to her popularity as a demo singer for local recording studios. Her renown within the Long Island music scene gave her opportunities to work with musicians such as Gavin Christopher and Ben Margulies, with whom she co-wrote material for her demo tape. After moving to New York City, Mariah Carey worked numerous part-time jobs to pay the rent and completed five hundred hours of beauty school. Eventually, she became a backup singer for Brenda K. Starr.

In 1988 Mariah Carey met Columbia Records executive Tommy Mottola at a party, where Starr gave him Carey's demo tape. Mottola played the tape while leaving the party and was very impressed with what he heard. He returned to the party to find Mariah Carey , but she had left. Nevertheless, Mottola tracked her down and signed her to a recording contract. This Cinderella-like story became part of the standard publicity surrounding Carey's entrance into the industry

Mariah Carey attended Greenlawn's Harborfields High School. In June of 1990 Mariah Carey made her debut with "Mariah Carey" which entered at 73, but on August 4 1990 it reached 1. Mariah Carey is the only artist since the Beatles and Elvis Presley to have so many 1 singles and albums. Along with numerous awards, she is the most successful selling female artist in music history and is the only female artist to have straight 1 singles and albums.
Mariah Carey married Tommy Mottola on June the 5th 1993, but they divorced 5 years later (5 March 1998).
