It was this great singer who handed the tape to Tommy Mottola and it contained Carey's songs which she sang. Mottola listened to it on his way home. And he was completely touched by her talent.
Over the years she sang a number of songs. Most of them are romantic and love songs; she also sings hip hop and classic. "Vision of Love", "Love Takes Time", "Someday" and "I Don't Wanna Cry", are some of her unforgettable songs. She got Grammy awards over night as a Best New Artist and Best Female Vocalist.
