I was 22 when I first saw and heard Mariah. I love good music so her sound was great but when I saw her, I felt a connection. We looked similar and that was not something I said often. I am also multiracial like Mariah. Although, our family set up is different. My mother is African-Am. and dad is Irish.
I would buy her albums and watch the videos over and over. I went to her concert in 2003 in the Northwest. Not many people were there. They acted like they forgot MC. I didn't though cuz I'm a lamb.
I can't wait to see "The Goddess" again live! I even went blonde once in her honor. Many laughs from friends and family. ( Listening now to: "I've been thinking about you." Music Box album)
Thanks for reading.
