Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival confirms that award-winning singer, songwriter and record producer Mariah Carey, will be performing in Dubai as the headline act for its second night on February 23rd. The 15th anniversary celebration taking place at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre from February 22nd to 24th has 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 and 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,” “Touch My Body,” “One Sweet Day” 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 honors, her popularity is evident across social media, with 21 million Facebook fans, 16 million Twitter followers and 4.6 million followers.
A breathtaking live performer, selling out stadiums and arenas around the world, Carey most recently completed her “Sweet Sweet Fantasy” tour across Europe and second Vegas residency. Excited to come to Dubai, the songstress is poised to captivate her audience with a performance that will surely inspire and awe.
“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,” says Anthony Younes, CEO of Chillout Productions, Founders and Organisers of the Dubai Jazz Festival.
