Mariah Carey is an American singer, songwriter, actor, and record producer (/mra/; born March 27, 1969). She is recognized for her five-octave vocal range, melismatic singing style, distinctive use of the whistle register, and songwriting. She is also known as the “Songbird Supreme” and the “Queen of Christmas.”
Carey went to a party hosted by a music executive with Starr in December 1988, where she presented Tommy Mottola, the head of Columbia Records, with her demo tape.
He listened to the audio on the way home and asked the driver to turn around right away.
In what has been called a contemporary Cinderella tale, Carey had already left the event when he spent two weeks trying to find her.
There was a bidding war after a different record label expressed interest. Producers Ric Wake, Narada Michael Walden, and Rhett Lawrence worked with Carey on her debut album after Mottola signed her to Columbia.
