Mariah Carey is known for her impeccable voice that captures the love song as few artists have in the last two decades. With the release of her Mariah: The Ballads in time for Valentine’s Day, your amorous day’s soundtrack has just arrived.
Mariah has given SheKnows a widget (below) with a video jukebox containing dozens of her greatest hits.
The Ballads begins with a song that aided America’s mourning after 9/11, Hero, and then uplifts with her duet with Boyz II Men, One Sweet Day.
From there the set journeys through not only Carey’s best ballads, but many that serve as the best ballads of all time. Vision of Love soars with Mariah’s angelic vocals. Her first single that introduced her to the world, Vision illustrates how empty the musical landscape would be without the sonic succulence produced by Mariah Carey.
This is the first time that Carey’s ballads have been housed on one disc and it is the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for friends and lovers alike.
When it comes to Mariah, there is the voice, yes, but then there is the proof in the musical pudding. Carey has sold 200 million albums worldwide. She was the first artist to have all five of her first singles hit the Top 10. Oh, and there’s that little fact that she surpassed Elvis Presley in 2008 for having the most number one singles of all time.
Mariah is impressive indeed.
So, pull up a comfortable chair for two, sit back and enjoy the songs of Mariah Carey.
