Mariah Carey To Launch 'Angels Advocate' Tour On New Year's Eve
Mariah Carey is set to launch her Angels Advocate Tour on New Year's Eve at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
The Angels Advocate Tour terminates in Las Vegas on the night of Feb. 27.
Carey is touring to support her 12th studio album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel.
Opening for Carey on this go-around is RydazNrtist. They are a new R&B group belonging to Nick Cannon's record label, NCredible. Cannon just so happens to be married to Carey.
For most, Mariah Carey's big claim to fame is being imitated by most of the girls auditioning for American Idol. After that it's her rampant diva-complex and her monumental failures in Hollywood
However, Carey's impact in the world of music is far more substantial than just inspiring weak-voiced girls into singing runs (the musical term is melisma) with their hands cocked like a Rhesus monkey.
Carey is insanely successful. She's like Beatles and Elvis successful.
The R&B diva has sold more than 175 million albums, singles, and videos. She's the world's 16th best-selling artist and the United States best-selling female artist. She's posted more number-one singles than any artists except the Fab Four, and Billboard magazine ranked her sixth on their list of all-time chart toppers.
Apart from commercial achievements, Carey has won five Grammy Awards and 11 American Music Awards. Throughout her professional career M.C. has captured 245 awards.
The 39-year-old is more than just a pretty face and a functioning crazy person that can sing really well. She actually knows what she's doing. Carey has co-written nearly all of material and co-produces her albums.
Other honors include performing at one of Barack Obama's Inaugural Balls in Washington D.C.
; singing "I'll Be There" at the memorial service for Michael Jackson held at Staples Center in Los Angeles; and performing the national anthem prior to Super Bowl XXXVI in New Orleans.
Obviously members of her fan club, Honey B. Fly, know about her impressive resume. But for many, Mariah is more of a prima donna than her generation's premiere R&B singer. Looking at her achievements you must draw the conclusion that Mariah Carey is a living legend and a true musical genius.
