Just in time for the holiday season, this list of Mariah Carey innovations is inspired by Ms. Carey’s now infamous song, 'All I want for Christmas is You,' but of course, one of the world’s top selling female recording artists has been recognized for a few other incredible achievements in her long career.
From purchasing a $150,000,000 home to unexpectedly marrying comedian and actor Nick Cannon, not to mention her much-publicized weight loss and gain, these Mariah Carey finds demonstrate how much of an influence the iconic star has in pop culture.
41-year-old Carey made her recording debut in 1990 with her self-titled first album, which went multi-platinum and produced four hit singles. Her legendary voice and divalicious persona have made her a true living legend in the music industry. Check out this gallery of Mariah Carey innovations for a look at her incredible career.
