Music Spotlight: Mariah Carey
My favorite singer of all time is the 8-octave-hitting, Mariah Carey. Now that she's officially surpassed Elvis' record of the amount of #1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 charts (2nd to the Beatles), Mariah has definitely and justifiably secured her a place in the record books. Her current single, "Touch My Body," is Mariah's 18th chart-topper.
I remember the first time I heard her first single, "Vision of Love," back in 1990 when I was 10-years-old. I thought, "Wow, this person sounds like Whitney Houston." I don't know, maybe it was because I was only a kid and couldn't differentiate voices that well, but nonetheless I loved what I heard!
Now nearly 2 decades later I'm still enjoying Mariah's music. No one can sing a pop/R&B tune like her!! That's why I am anxiously awaiting the release of her latest CD, E=MC2 on April 16th.
