Mariah pays tribute to Whitney Houston with new video
Mariah Carey has paid tribute to her friend Whitney Houston in a new music video. The singer
- who famously recorded the duet "When You Believe" with Houston - was among the many stars
in attendance at her funeral service on Saturday (February 18) at New Hope Baptist Church in
Carey has now compiled highlights of her favourite memories of Houston on her official YouTube
page. The specially-produced video includes clips from their "When You Believe" music video
as well as pictures of the two stars together at awards shows and red carpet events. Carey
also posted the video remembrance on her Twitter, writing: "Whitney, my friend, I love you,
I miss you. Your legend lives on forever."
The two stars were admitted rivals as their careers took off in the early 1990s, but later
became friends when they recorded "When You Believe" for the 1998 film The Prince of Egypt.
"When You Believe" reached the top five of the UK chart and also hit the top 20 in the US.
Carey was among the many stars who blogged about Houston in the hours after her death on
February 11. She tweeted at the time: "Heartbroken and in tears over the shocking death of
my friend, the incomparable Ms. Whitney Houston. My heartfelt condolences to Whitney's family
and to all her millions of fans throughout the world. She will never be forgotten as one of
the greatest voices to ever grace the earth."

The Vegas shows are starting and so I hope things go back to a world where Mariah's performances are getting the headline treatment and not her day to day vacation updates, her accidental tumbles and why JP didn't get up or things of that nature. I like that MC's team is controlling the press but honestly everything is good in small doses. They wer... read more (Tuesday 7 July 2015; 19:12)

Yes, I was going to post something similar. Not sure what is going on with the whole Packer thing. I really do hope it's not for publicity and she is just having fun. I know there were reports that Packer is opening a casino in Vegas soon. I just hope he didn't decide to be "seen" with Mariah in between her Vegas shows to get his name out there now... read more (Tuesday 7 July 2015; 16:51)
