Mariah Carey is a Grammy Award-winning American singer/songwriter known for her remarkable vocal range. She was the most successful artist of the 90s in the United States, according to Billboard magazine. With a voice that covers all octaves between alto and soprano, Carey's agility and ability to sing in the whistle register set her apart. Inspired by Minnie Riperton, she honed her technique from an early age and expanded her vocal range over time.
In 2003, MTV and Blender magazine ranked Carey's voice first in their countdown of the 22 Greatest Voices in Music, as voted by fans and readers. Despite this recognition, Carey remains humble about her talent. Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2007, she has a Lyric Soprano vocal type but considers herself an alto.
