Kenang diva pop dunia, Mariah Carey, terhadap sahabatnya yang juga penyanyi tenar Whitney Houston.

Ada pernyataan familiar yang mengatakan bahwa tali persahabatan tidak akan pernah mampu terputus, meski ajal memisahkan sekalipun.

Hal ini dapat terlihat dari persahabatan penyanyi Mariah Carey, 42 tahun, dengan mendiang Whitney Houston, 48 tahun.

Dalam acara BET Awards yang diadakan beberapa waktu lalu, istri Nick Cannon ini meneteskan air mata saat mengenang sang sahabat.

Di dalam pidato singkatnya, ia mengatakan bahwa ia sangat mengagumi pelantun lagu I Will Always Love You itu.

Jalinan persahabatan di antara keduanya semakin erat saat mereka berduet bersama di lagu populer When You Believe pada tahun 1998.

Whitney Houston meninggal di Beverly Hills, Amerika Serikat, 11 Februari 2012, kabarnya kematian Whitney disebabkan karena overdosis, walaupun hingga kini kepolisian masih menyelidiki kasus tersebut.

Pop Diva Mariah Carey Touches Down For New Year

Sydney Confidential

SINGER Mariah Carey arrived in the country at the weekend ahead of her first Australian tour in 15 years and will spend New Year’s Eve with her family.

Confidential hears the pop diva, her rapper husband Nick Cannon and the couple’s 18-month-old twins Moroccan and Monroe (or Roc and Roe as she calls them) will see in 2013 aboard a luxury yacht on the Great Barrier Reef.

The foursome touched down on the Gold Coast on Friday night via private jet and boarded the boat on Saturday morning, according to our Queensland sources.

Getting the best of both worlds, the couple and their children spent Christmas in snowy US ski capital, Aspen, in Colorado.

It’s understood they will sail around the reef before heading to the Gold Coast tomorrow for Carey’s first show at Jupiters Casino with Cannon as the support artist with a DJ set.

The family will then head to Sydney for a concert on January 3, before wrapping things up in Melbourne on January 5.

While the shows are highly anticipated, there are plenty of disappointed fans who have been waiting to see the Hero singer since her Butterfly tour in 1998.

The first two gigs sold out in four minutes, but there are a small number of tickets available for the Melbourne show.

News of the tour came as a surprise because Carey has not released new music since 2010, when her second Christmas album came out.

She is one of the most successful female entertainers of all time, selling a staggering 200 million records and the 43-year-old has promised her fans an unforgettable show.

“It is really hard to make sure I see all of my fans around the world,” she said.

“It has been a case of waiting for the right time to make the trip.”

Mariah Carey announces she’s “excited to be back in Australia”

Mariah Carey is going to make her fans in Australia extremely happy very soon. The diva announced her arrival at Gold Coast on Saturday for several shows in the country. Looking to sing to the masses before she has to be committed to spending time in Hollywood for American Idol, the diva rushed across the Pacific Ocean for her fans.

“G’day Gold Coast. So excited to be back in Australia, I can’t wait to see you all at the shows,” tweeted Mariah Carey from her official Twitter account on Saturday. The long flight probably made her pretty tired as it takes hours to cross the ocean.

While the shows are already highly anticipated, it appears Mariah Carey’s announcement has everyone just a bit more excited. Letting her fans know she left America a day earlier, it appears that arriving at her destination will make everyone appreciate the effort she made over the holidays to travel to Australia.

Beberapa waktu sebelum Natal, Mariah Carey terlihat di Aspen, Colorado, menghampiri toko-toko mewah seperti Louis Vuitton dan Ralph Lauren dengan menggunakan gaun panjang kotak-kotak berbahan wol.

Penyanyi yang sangat menyukai fesyen itu terlihat di kota bersama suaminya, Nick Cannon (32) dan kedua anak kembarnya Monroe dan Moroccan.

Meski musim dingin, Mariah tetap menggunakan gaun kotak-kota itu ditambah dengan jaket hitam meski cuaca sangat dingin.

Gaun itu ia lengkapi dengan sabuk, korset lebar, dan anting-anting.

Mariah Carey touches down in Australia’s Gold Coast

Fresh from her Christmas getaway in Aspen, Colorado, Mariah Carey flew via private jet to Gold Coast Queensland, Australia today (December 28). The “Emotions” singer was joined by her husband Nick Cannon and their twins Monroe and Moroccan as she stepped off the plane at the Coolangatta Airport ahead of some tour dates in Sydney and Melbourne.

Earlier this week, Mariah was generous with the family photos she posted to her Twitter page from their Yule Tide celebrations. Carey tweeted, “Merry Christmas from the Carey-Cannons. Pictures from our most festive Christmas yet.” In January Mariah will return to the “American Idol” set, and she’s announced a new album that’s slated to drop in March.

Mariah Carey Graces the Coast

20121229-105821.jpg

Gold Coast

She’s the biggest artist to visit the Gold Coast since Whitney Houston shared the bill with Frank Sinatra for The Ultimate Event at the opening of Sanctuary Cove in 1988.

Mariah Carey is an undisputable diva among divas — and not just because of her notorious penchant for the six-star life. (Interesting fact: She owns Marilyn Monroe’s white piano).

Like them or loathe them, Carey, Celine Dion and the late Houston are renowned as the world’s top three divas because of their vocal powers.

There’s a very good reason Carey has remained at the top of the pack since she released her debut album 22 years ago. She has a five-octave vocal range — and isn’t afraid to use her whistle register! (Interesting fact: The whistle register, also called the flageolet, is the highest register of the human voice, above the modal register and falsetto).

Ranked second this year on VH1’s 100 Greatest Women in Music list, Carey’s voice earned her a place in the Guinness Book Of World Records and the title “songbird supreme” for the highest range of any recorded singer.

Carey high note is G#7 — known as the dolphin squeak. The kind of note that can shatter glass.

She has clocked up total album sales of more than 200 million worldwide, a figure that keeps rising every Christmas when new legions of music lovers discover her 1994 Merry Christmas album and single All I Want for Christmas. (Interesting fact: She co-wrote and co-produced the hit track with Walter Afanasieff.)

In 1995, Carey made history when her duet with Boyz II Men, One Sweet Day, spent a record 16 weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100. The songs remains the longest-running No. 1 in US chart history.

The proud owner of more No. 1 US singles than Elvis, Carey’s tally of 18 is second only to The Beatles (who have 21) and light years ahead of “pop culture icon” Madonna.

She has five Grammy Awards, 17 World Music Awards, 11 American Music Awards and 31 Billboard Music Awards to her credit but unlike Whitney and Celine, Mariah is not only a singer and actress but a songwriter and record producer.

Of course, if it looks like a diva, quacks like a diva and walks like a diva, it isn’t necessarily a diva. But if it sings like Mariah, well … it’s perhaps the world’s greatest living diva.

Don’t be fooled by the choice of venue for the first show of Mariah Carey’s first Australian tour in 15 years.

Carey, 42, is playing the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre because Jupiters has subsidised the show (just as Mike Gore did with Whitney and Frank at Sanctuary Cove).

If they hadn’t, she wouldn’t be playing the Gold Coast at all.

She’s too big a diva, dahlings.
