Mariah Carey was born on the 27th March 1969, in Huntington, New York. Her mother used to be an opera singer and vocal coach. From an early age, Carey showed great signs of creative talent. Reportedly, the only real subjects she enjoyed at school were art, music, and literature. She enjoyed singing and began writing poems and adding melodies to them. This sparked her initial pursuit as a singer-songwriter.
While Mariah Carey started writing songs, she was living in Manhattan with four female students and was waitressing to pay the bills. She finally managed to record her own demo tape but failed in trying to pass it on successfully to record labels. Shortly after recording to demo, Mariah Carey was introduced to pop singer Brenda Starr. As Brenda and Mariah became friends, she was very keen on helping Mariah succeed in the industry. Starr presented Carey’s demo tape to the head of Columbia Records, and he immediately signed Mariah after listening to the tape. Since then, her music has become some of the most popular of all time, and each one of her albums has achieved major success. According to many media reports, Mariah Carey’s net worth as of today is ₹21,000 million.
