Mariah Carey’s legendary music career began nearly 30 years ago. In fact, everyone’s favorite Christmas tune “All I Want For Christmas Is You” was released over 25 years ago! Her most successful singles all came in the 1990s. “Hero”, “Without You”, “Always Be my Baby” were all released before 1996.
Known for her incredible 5-octave range, Carey has struggled to reach the same heights this century. She had a very public physical and emotional breakdown after signing a record deal with Columbia and has had only one album that has had begun to reach the successes of her early albums.
