Mariah Carey records "Almost Home"

Disney announced today that multiple Grammy Award-winning superstar Mariah Carey has recorded the song, "Almost Home", for "Oz The Great and Powerful", the studio's highly anticipated fantastical adventure, directed by Sam Raimi, releasing in theaters nationwide on March 8, 2013.
"Almost Home" will be released as a single by Carey's label, Island Def Jam, on February 19, 2013. Award-winning photographer/director David LaChapelle will direct Carey in the music video for "Almost Home". The two long-time collaborators are reuniting in what LaChapelle describes as "a duet between Mariah and the movie". LaChapelle photographed Carey previously for album covers, and directed her in the music video "Loverboy". Disney, Carey and Island Def Jam plan to launch a promotional campaign to support the single, the video and the film.
"Almost Home has a message that works beautifully with the film," Mariah Carey says of the song she co-wrote and co-produced for "Oz The Great and Powerful". "It's a feel-good record, evoking the feeling of reaching your home and being with people that you love."
Mariah Carey is the best-selling female artist of all time with more than 200 million albums sold to date and eighteen Billboard #1 singles (seventeen self-penned). With her distinct five-octave vocal range, prolific songwriting, and producing talent, Carey has defined the modern pop performance. As a singer/songwriter/producer, she has been recognized with five Grammy Awards, nine American Music Awards, Billboard's Artist of the Decade Award, the World Music Award for World's Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium and BMI's Icon Award for her outstanding achievements in songwriting, to name a few. Carey is currently working on her new studio album to be released this spring.
"Almost Home" is performed by Mariah Carey, produced by Mariah Carey and Stargate for 45th & 3rd Music LLC, written by Simone Porter, Justin Gray, Lindsey Ray, Tor Erik Hermansen, Mikkel Eriksen and Mariah Carey. Courtesy of Island Def Jam Music Group/Universal Music Group.
Disney's fantastical adventure "Oz The Great and Powerful", directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum's beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he's hit the jackpot - fame and fortune are his for the taking - that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone's been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity - and even a bit of wizardry - Oscar transforms himself not only into the great wizard but into a better man as well.
"Oz The Great and Powerful" is produced by Joe Roth, with screen story by Mitchell Kapner and screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire. Grant Curtis, Palak Patel, Josh Donen and Philip Steuer are serving as executive producers. "Oz The Great and Powerful" opens in U.S. theaters on March 8, 2013.

Mariah and JP (54,976) by Darren S from Your Heart

The spiritual advisor thingy wasn't that exciting lol, but it's better than all the negative stuff last year. Team MC is doing a good job at damage repair and building up MC's image back. Btw I just listened to E=MC2 and Butterfly and got a bit frustrated for all the potential that have been wasted. We all agreed Migrate should've been a huge hit b... read more

Recent news and Vegas shows (54,975) by Amber C from USA

I don't for one bit believe any lamb who says they don't care about Mariah's personal life atm. If you really didn't care then you wouldn't have cared a couple months ago or five years ago when you obviously did, because you never ceized to. Not to mention, you're a lamb so have several seats. However I'm annoyed by these "spiritual advisor" rumors... read more

B / BET Awards (54,974) by Marissa from USA

As a black woman, I'm offended that the BET Awards in particular is seen as "not important". This is a particularly hot button issue for me because the "ethnic" awards are always the first to be written off as irrelevant. Those awards are sometimes the only validation that black artists can get for their work. If they are lucky enough to get to the... read more
