Ever since, Mariah Carey’s first album came out she made it to the number one charts. I have bought every album of hers. She is a decent woman who inspired so many singing artists. Her songs have high ballads. She has the perfect voice to sing for any song. In the 90’s she had number one hits through the whole decade. She reinvented herself to look different in every music videos. The songs I love the most are Make It Happen, There’s Got To Be A Way, and I Want To Know What Love Is. Those are my favorites. She did an MTV Unplugged show of singing few of her songs in front of her fans. She is the ultimate Diva. The one song that is sang traditionally is What I Want For Christmas Is You. Before she was famous she lived in an apartment with her friends and had almost no money to live on. She was recognized by a record label when she sent her tape to the manager in person, and they accepted her to a record deal. The smart thing she did was to be an R&B singer just like her mother is an Opera Singer. She lived in New York at the time. Now all of her music are household names. Her breakthrough album was Mariah Carey, Mariah Carey. She has appeared on talk shows like Good Morning America, and The Arsenio Hall Show. Her music videos are decent to watch, and she hasn’t changed them in any other way. She married Nick Cannon a few years ago and now has two children. She is the all-time top selling female singing artist. She has appeared on music award shows, and movies. She sang I’ll Be There by The Jackson 5 on Mariah Carey MTV Unplugged. She is a legendary Icon. Her music legacy will live on.

Britney Spears started her career when she was a Disney Mouseketeer at The Mickey Mouse Club appearing on TV in The Disney Channel, back in 1993-95. The show was originally from The Disney Company. In this show there appeared now famous superstar singers who started alongside with her. Justine Timberlake, Christina Aguilera just to name a few. Then, years later the show became canceled for some reason. She practiced very hard singing her vocal chords. She went on to search for a record deal, and wanted her own solo singing career. She came to the auditions, and the record producer thought she was perfect, and wanted to sign her. She got that chance, and didn’t waste it. All of her friends from The Mickey Mouse Club did the same. Her first album came out in the last year of the 90’s. The very first songs were “You Drive Me Crazy”, “Sometimes”, and “…Baby One More Time” were all number one hits. People wanted to see her own reinvention, and they went to see her concerts, which became very successful. Once she knew this was going to happen she went on to make more albums, and they also became huge hits. She became a household name, and in the early 21st century everyone knew her all over the world. She received many awards from MTV Music Awards,Music Grammy Awards, and the rest is history. Her reinvention from The mickey Mouse Club to a singing solo career is amazing and awesome. She is a true superstar. Her recent albums of the second decade of the 21st century were also huge hits. Songs like”I Wanna Go”, “Criminal”, and “Ooh, La, La” from The Smurfs 2 soundtrack became huge hits. Fans all over the world come to see her perform in concerts all over the globe.

On The Music Industry

Michael Jackson

Many singing talents come and go. The music industry was dying, but in 2013 is the year that saved the music industry with old singers, and groups reinventing themselves, and new talents coming in. My favorite all-time singer is Mariah Carey, and she is the reason why music is a power house, which she’s one of the reasons why. Music in this year has no problems being successful, but I don’t have any idea of it going very far, and it could go one of the two ways: strong or weak again. Well, if it stays on course from this year, then it will be saved. This year is saved for now at least. Michael Jackson has saved this industry all of the time. It depends on new singers, and groups to fill the music industry’s shoes that many past singers brought us. I hope it gets better from this year to the next ones. In the 80’s music was a powerhouse, but slowly declined as in second place, but 2013 is the year that has returned back to a powerhouse. It isn’t easy for an industry to go this high, and I think the staff of the industry needs to be credited with this big turn around. However, millions love to hear new and old songs. The next years will become more interesting in this music industry, which is a magical place.

About Madonna

She is a true artist that made it up big time, when she began her singing career in the early 80’s. The Madonna we know and truly love is charismatic, and strangely bizarre. The early videos were decent and clean, which people came to love her in music videos she perfected in her own right, the later one’s turn into a bizarre twist that some other fans didn’t quite like, but she still had an audience for it. Fans come to love her and hate her,but I idolize her. I just love her songs that are entertaining for me, and most of us. My favorite videos are “This used to be my Playground”, and “Deeper and Deeper”. The first one I’ve mentioned is clean and innocent in the honesty for the movies about girls playing pro baseball which the women’s pro league was banned a few years later. It was history in the making for “A League of Their Own” at the box office, and starred alongside Tom Hanks. The second had a strange outcome of party with strange people who had the most psychedelic funk fun to it in “Deeper and Deeper”. We seem to worry about those balloons in the video. I for one like how she’s attractive in that video. There you go two of my favorite music videos. The books she wrote were for the public to read, which one is strange. I think this book was called “Sex”, which come to mention. It meant having all the pleasures of sex anywhere, and it took very far. The other one is a children’s novel, which she wanted to make, and these two were a huge success. She still carries a wide audience. Once the concert is performed by her the whole seats are filled as in they’re sold out. But, we can still see her on TV, because we have to wait for months for that to happen. I am her huge fan. If you’re of her taste of music then this is for you, if it isn’t then go for something else. She did it all, and is a true superstar in her credit. Her music will be immortalized, and won’t ever be forgotten. She is and will always forever be loved by millions of fans around the globe.
