Mariah Carey is an American pop singer whose discovery is very much like a modern day Cinderella-like story
. Born in Huntington New York in 1970, Carey’s musical roots stems from her mother, an occasional opera singer who trained Carey on the basics of voice. While attending a record executives gala in 1987, Carey’s demo tape was passed onto the head of Columbia Records who was immediately taken with the sound and quality of her five octave range. She was signed immediately and her...
multi-platinum debut record was released in 1990.
With numerous awards and accolades to her name, Carey has solidified her position as a viable recording artist. She has made numerous appearances on television and has had roles in film as well. After a rough start, Carey was finally able to find success on the big screen with her award winning performance in the 2009 motion picture, Precious. Though she had declined offers to use her name to promote goods and services in the United States early in her career, this changed in 2006 with her endorsement for Intel Centrino computers. Other promotions followed as well as a licensing deal with Elizabeth Arden to produce fragrances under her name.
In 2007 Mariah Carey launched her first perfume, M. A delicate and romantic scent M is featured in a pretty lilac vessel topped with a delightful butterfly—a fun take on the enjoyable contents within. In keeping with the butterfly theme Carey has also released the popular Lollipop series as well as Luscious and Mariah Carey Forever.
