Sing Out!

March 27, 2013

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re all having an awesome day. Jella told me that today is Mariah Carey’s birthday! And given that Jella loves to sing, she couldn’t help but celebrate the birthday of one of her favorite singers. Did you know that Mariah Carey has sold more than 80 million records? Wow!

Mariah Carey was born on March 27, 1970, in Huntington, New York. When she was two, her mom couldn’t believe Mariah’s vocal range, and Mariah started having voice lessons at age four. Mariah’s amazing voice spans five octaves (which is incredible), and she’s also an actress and has been in different movies. Jella is always singing her songs like Hero, Music Box, and Fantasy.

What I think is most interesting about Mariah Carey is that she always wanted to be a singer, and she worked hard to achieve that goal. When she was 18, she moved to Manhattan and had jobs working as a waitress and a coat check person, but she never gave up trying to pursue a music career. Mariah’s determination is really an inspiration to all of us. We can all reach our goals if we work hard and truly believe in ourselves. We all have the power to live our dreams!

So Happy Birthday, Mariah Carey! And don’t forget…have a critterrific music-filled day!
