Mariah Carey born in Huntington, New York is an American pop music singer, songwriter, record producer, music video director, actress, and philanthropist who rose to prominence in the 1990s. Carey's music has been influenced by pop, rhythm and blues, dance, hip-hop, gospel, and rock and roll. She is credited as having a five-octave vocal range, possibly the greatest range of any popular singer since Minnie Riperton in the 1970s.
She makes lavish use of melisma; her vocal swoops and trills are easily recognizable features of her sound. In 2007, USA Today ranked Mariah Carey sixth among 20 richest women entertainers in United States. First was of course was Oprah Winfrey, followed by J.K. Rowling and Martha Stewart.
Surveys have placed Carey as one of the best-selling female recording artists worldwide. She was the top-selling recording artist of any kind during the 1990s and her singles have spent more weeks at #1 than any other living artist in Billboard history has have. Carey's vocal style influenced a generation of singers who came after her, including Christina Aguilera and Beyonce Knowles as well as many American Idol competitors.
