22nd Annual Ascap Awards
Superstars Mariah Carey and Usher joined Marilyn Bergman on stage to pay tribute
to their musical collaborator. Jermaine Dupri has worked with Carey on a number
of albums and has four songs on her current album The Emancipation of Mimi, which
is tearing up the Billboard charts.|
Dupri's work on Usher's multi-platinum album, Confessions, garnered four 2005
Grammy nominations for his songwriting and production work on chart-toppers,
"Burn", "Confessions Part II", and "My Boo". Dupri and Usher picked up awards
during the ceremony for their winning songs "Burn", and "Confessions Part II".
Mariah Carey and fellow artist Usher posed with music producer Jermaine Dupri
after he received the ASCAP Golden Note Award at the 22nd Annual ASCAP Pop Music
Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California last night. Mariah
Carey and Usher celebrated with Jermaine Dupri and laughed at a joke made by music
producer Jermaine Dupri during the 22nd Annual ASCAP. Both Usher and Carey paid
tribute to Dupri before the producer received the ASCAP Golden Note Award.
Mariah Carey's recent hits, "It's Like That" and "We Belong Together", were
collaborations with Dupri. Moreover, Mariah also worked with Dupri on the #1
smash hit "Always Be My Baby" from Mariah's Daydream album. The first time Mariah
collaborated with Dupri was in 1994 with a remix of the "Never Forget You" single
from the Music Box album. Some other fans remember him from the 1998 hit "Sweetheart".

I also love this album, even more than the 1994 release. It sounds less commercial and more soulful than the former Christmas album. Even though I'm a big fan of "All I Want For Christmas Is You" and other songs from "Merry Christmas", listening to MCIIY gives me the true chills. My fav tracks are: HCSC and CTIITAA.

So the general public sees Mariah as a blonde bimbo that was gifted with a great voice. Mariah and the lambs try to change this image and insist that she writes her own lyrics and she is indeed an amazing songwriter. What I don't understand is why there is no recognition of Mariah as a musician. She composes brilliant melodies. Afanasieff said he n... read more
