Mariah Carey

The exact year of the birth of the artist Mariah Carey is unknown, however it is speculated to be either 1969 or 1970 on March 27th in America. The Guinness World Records refers to Mariah as the “Songbird Supreme” and she is known for her vocal range that spans five octaves, a feat that not many singers, even professional ones, manage to match.

Her debut album was released in 1990, and was named after the singer herself after she signed to Columbia Records. Four singles were released from her debut album which managed to hit the number one spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. The singles were: “Vision of Love”, “Love Takes Times”, “Someday”, and “I don’t Wanna Cry”. Although already hugely successful, Mariah managed to follow her chart success with the single, “Emotions”, which was part of her second album of the same name, which also made it to number one. The success of her singles has made her the first and only artist to have their first five singles managed to reach number one spots on the Billboard Hot 100, a feat that other artists would love to match.
