Mariah Carey is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress. Referred to as the “Songbird Supreme” by Guinness World Records, she is noted for her five-octave vocal range, melismatic singing style, improvisation skills, her signature use of the whistle register, and songwriting. For the enduring popularity of her holiday music, particularly the 1994 song “All I Want for Christmas Is You”, she has also been dubbed the “Queen of Christmas”.

Carey rose to fame in 1990 with her debut album Mariah Carey. She was the first artist to have their first five singles reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100, from “Vision of Love” to “Emotions”. An inductee into the Songwriters Hall of Fame,[3] she is credited for inspiring several generations of pop and R&B artists, and for merging hip hop with pop music through her crossover collaborations. Carey’s self-titled debut album was released under the guidance of Columbia Records executive Tommy Mottola, who married her three years later.

She gained further worldwide success with the albums Music Box (1993) and Daydream (1995). Their singles include “Hero”, “Without You”, “Fantasy”, “Always Be My Baby”, and “One Sweet Day”, which topped the US Billboard Hot 100 decade-end chart (1990s) and was the longest running number one song of the decade. After separating from Mottola, Carey adopted a new urban image and incorporated more elements of hip hop with the album Butterfly (1997). She left Columbia in 2001 after eleven consecutive years of US number-one singles and signed a $100 million record deal with Virgin Records.
