Mariah Carey to perform at Emirates Dubai Jazz Festival

DUBAI, December 6, 2016

Award-winning singer, songwriter and record producer Mariah Carey will be performing in Dubai as the headline act on the second night (February 23) of Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival, which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year.

Taking place at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre from February 22 to 24, the festival also recently announced the biggest Latin recording artist in music history, Enrique Iglesias, taking the stage on its last night.

The best-selling female artist of all time, with more than 220 million records sold eighteen #1 singles – the most for any solo artist in history – Mariah Carey is a luminous and enduring talent who has enthralled audiences for a quarter-century.  Known for her distinct five-octave vocal range, she is equally distinguished as a songwriter, penning all but one of her #1 singles, including 'Fantasy', 'Always Be My Baby', 'Hero', and 'We Belong Together', more than any other solo artist.

As a singer, songwriter and producer, Carey has been recognized with multiple Grammy Awards, 21 American Music Awards, 14 Billboard Music Awards and BMI’s coveted Icon Award, among myriad others, and was named Billboard’s Artist of the Decade and the World Music Awards’ World’s Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium.  Beyond industry honours, her popularity is evident across social media, with 21 million Facebook fans, 16 million Twitter followers and 4.6 million followers.

“It is such an honour to have one of the world’s most remarkable music icons, Mariah Carey, perform on the stage of Dubai Jazz Festival. We aim to provide something unique and memorable for our fans, old and new. We also wish to attract more festival goers even beyond the Middle East to celebrate music together on our 15th anniversary,” said Anthony Younes, CEO of Chillout Productions, founders and organisers of the Dubai Jazz Festival. - TradeArabia News Service
