Who is Mariah Carey, Scott’s mom?
Mariah Carey was born in Huntington, New York USA, on 27 March 1969, so her zodiac sign is Aries and she holds American nationality.
She is a singer/songwriter, record producer and actress, one of the best-selling artists of all time, particularly known for her five-octave vocal range.
She was raised by her father Alfred Roy Carey, and her mother Patricia Hickey, who was an opera singer and a vocal coach before meeting Mariah’s father. Patricia’s family stopped talking to her after she married a black man (Alfred) leading to Mariah feeling neglected by her mother’s family. Alfred and Patricia divorced when Mariah was three years old, and she and her brother Morgan went on to live with Patricia, while their sister Alison lived with Alfred. Mariah rarely saw her father, and later lost contact with him.
She started singing while attending elementary school, and then after enrolling at Harborfields High School in Greenlaw in New York, she began writing her own songs, thus launching her career as a songwriter. She met Gavin Christopher at high school and they started writing songs together; after recording four songs, Mariah tried to work with music labels, but was rejected each time before she met Brenda K. Starr, a famous pop singer.
They became friends and Brenda helped Mariah get her songs listened to by head of Columbia Records Tommy Mottola, who after listening to only two songs decided that he wanted to work with Mariah, and a contract was signed.
Her first, self-titled album was then released, and Columbia spent more than $1 million promoting it, with it reaching #1 on Billboard 200. Her second album entitled “Emotions” was released on 17 September 1991, and although very popular in the US, it was not as good as her debut album.
She decided to work rather differently on her third album – “Music Box” – as she wanted it to be more successful, and released on 31 August it became famous worldwide, reaching #1 on the Billboard 200. She then went on her first tour , having previously been petrified of performing in front of many people, and the tour helped her overcome her fear as well as convince people that her voice was not fake, as some had believed.
She released her Christmas album entitled “Merry Christmas” on 1 November 1994, with it becoming one of the best-selling Christmas albums ever. Her fourth album entitled “Daydream” came out on 3 October 1995, and to this day is considered her best. She’s released more than 20 albums over the years, such as “Butterfly” in 1997, “Charmbracelet” in 2002, and “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel” in 2009.
Mariah is also an actress, having appeared in more than 10 movies and numerous TV shows. She made her debut appearance in “The Bachelor” TV show in 1999, and then appeared in the film “Glitter” in 2001, and the “Wise Girls” movie in 2002.
