ICON: MARIAH CAREY

Mariah Carey, vocal virtuoso, Mom, and goddaughter of Patti LaBelle, won the 2019 Billboard Icon Award. The “Songbird Supreme” writes her own music and holds her own vocally, sans auto-tune. Born into an environment that destroys lives, Mariah used music as her shield, earning success in a white, male dominated industry. Mariah continues to produce real vocals, compelling beats, and lyrics to live by. Songs from the monumental Mariah catalogue endure the test of time, proving Mariah is Supernatural. Many have tried to mimic, however, there is no mimeograph capable of replicating Mimi. Set aside the memes, glam and glitz, Mariah is an artist, with authentic vocal and song writing talent.
