On Friday, September 7th, legend Mariah Carey was honored with the BMI Icon Award, in recognition of her songwriting talents. For those who don’t know Mariah Carey is not just a vocal gymnast, but she is also a songwriter. Carey has written 99% of her discography and a record breaking 17 out of 18 of her number 1 singles.
During the awards Carey was honored by several of her peers including Eric Benett, Fantasia, Nas, and Karen Clark Sheard leading up to her being present with the Icon Award. One of the highlights of that was Fantasia’s singing one of Carey’s most known sings ‘Hero’, which cased the icon to raise for her seat to praise her.
