Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey has more #1 pop hits in the U.S. than anyone but the Beatles. She is a winner of five Grammy Awards. After her career seemed to be fading in the early 2000's, she returned with one of the biggest pop music comebacks of all time. Her hit "We Belong Together" spent 14 weeks at #1 and became one of the biggest pop hit singles of all time. Her collaboration with Boyz II Men on "One Sweet Day" is the longest reigning #1 hit in the US ever spending 16 weeks at the top. She has spent 79 weeks at number one in total, more than any other recording artist. Mariah Carey has sold more than 200 million records worldwide.

Mariah Carey's five-octave vocal range and melismatic style influenced a generation of pop singers who followed, particularly the contestants through fifteen years of American Idol. Mariah Carey also brought hip-hop into the pop mainstream.
