Born in New York, Mariah Carey is an American singer, record producer, songwriter and actress who is widely regarded as one of the most influential and prominent music stars of the 1990s and 2000s. Carey rose to fame in 1990 when she released the single Vision Of Love from her eponymous album. This single became a worldwide smash hit and catapulted Carey in to the upper echelons of the pop and R&B world, where she has stayed for more than 25 years. As well as a substantial solo catalogue, Carey has also performed iconic duets with the likes of Luther Vandross, Boys II Men and Westlife, and she has also ventured in to the world of cinema with a starring role in the vehicle Glitter as well as a very well received supporting performance in the Academy Award winning picture Precious. Carey's duet with Boyz II Men, One Sweet Day, currently holds the record for the longest running number one song in American chart history, spending a staggering 16 weeks at the top spot between 1995 and 1996. In 1998, Carey was given a specially made honor at the World Music Awards to celebrate her achievement of being the best selling recording artist of the 1990s, and in 2000 at the turn of century, she was further celebrated for being confirmed as the best selling female artist of the entire millennium. To date, Mariah Carey has sold more than 200 million records worldwide, and she receives an additional boost in popularity every Christmas when her season defining single, All I Want For Christmas Is You, annually becomes one of the most played songs during the month of December. With a total of 18, Carey has more number one singles in the US than any other solo artist.
