Mariah Carey was born in Huntington, New York, on March 27, 1970. She has African, Afro-Venezuelan, and Irish ancestors.
After coming to New York, her father’s father changed his last name from Nunez to Carey.
Her mother was a former opera singer who also served as a vocal instructor. Mariah’s parents divorced when she was three years old.
Mariah began writing poems and early songs while attending Harborfields High School in Greenlawn, New York, because she was always interested in the arts, particularly music.
In 1987, she graduated from high school. Mariah met Gavin Christopher and Ben Margulies at Harborfields, with whom she began writing whole songs with lyrics and music.
Mariah, Gavin, and Ben continued to collaborate after graduation, while living in New York City, on a full-length demo.
Brenda K. Starr, a pop singer, eventually heard the demo. Brenda proceeded to distribute the demo throughout the city while accompanying Mariah to numerous industry events.
The demo tape was given over to Tommy Mottola, the head of Columbia Records, at one of these galas.
On the drive home, he listened to the cassette in the car. He was confident Mariah Carey would become a star after hearing the first two songs.
Tommy took two weeks to find Mariah, but once he did, he immediately signed her to a record deal and put together a team to plan her commercial debut.
Mariah would be Columbia’s answer to Arista Records’ Whitney Houston, in Tommy’s opinion.
