11:05 Marty Duda's artist of the week: Mariah Carey
She’s the best-selling female artist of the 90s and, with a few notable failures, has kept that success running through the 21st century. Armed with a five-octive voice that would put any canine on notice, Mariah Carey is due to make her New Zealand concert debut on Thursday at Auckland’s Vector Arena. The New York-based vocalist started by singing straight pop but she spread her musical wings in the late 1990s by venturing into R&B and hip-hop, a move that coincided with her split from husband and Sony Music boss Tommy Mottola. Mariah’s latest album is the exclamatory, and highly-punctuated, “Me. I Am Mariah…The Elusive Chanteuse.
