Mariah mania in Manilla

Filipino fans got one good raison d'Ítre in spending more time in front of their TV sets this time as Mariah Carey's songs are presently re-becoming a proverbial tune specifically on every, if not all, local musical variety show in the Philippines.
In fact earlier today, 3 Mariah hits have been once again showcased on ASAP Mania during their "Divas" segment. Led by Philippines' premiere performer Gary Valenciano, the segment fired up with his performance of Whenever You Call which later shared on stage by local divas Zsa-Zsa Padilla and Anna Fegi. It was then followed with the song One Sweet Day, which Gary V. collaborated with the two new finalists from "Born Diva", ABS-CBN's newest reality-based singing contest. The segment ended with the group's rendition of Mariah Carey's 15th No.1 hit and a certified-Filipino favorite Thank God I Found You. ASAP can be seen worldwide through the Filipino Channel.
In an assessment, this trend of top local performers doing Mariah Carey songs on national TV is vastly an important thing for all Filipino fans and alike. Its enormous (free) promotion being given to Mariah Carey is very satisfactory and of great help especially that the release of her new album is just around the corner. Lets just hope that this trend on Philippine TV will continue for as long as it can be and inspire more artists to do the same.

In a late 90's interview Mariah had s... read more

Marcus (48,046) by B from USA

Mariah has written about Derek Jeter on every album since Butterfly. The majority of Butterfly was inspired by her divorce from Tommy and Derek. The songs that are about the demise of a relationship (Butterfly) are about Tommy and the songs about a new relationship and longing (My All and Babydoll) are about Derek. I'm not trying to be rude but you... read more

Mara and Marcus (48,045) by B from USA

Mara, I knew that and thought I included it in my post but accidentally deleted it when editing. Marcus, Butterfly was what Mariah had wished Tommy had said to her. I think it's easy to tell what she's referring to if you followed her career and personal life over the last two decades. I think the only song that was inspired by a movie was Obsessed... read more
