Grinch steals Mariah

Saturday 14 October 2000

Those won't be Mariah Carey's pipes that you hear warbling the theme song, "Where Are You, Christmas?" in this holiday season's "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," starring Jim Carrey. People reports that the diva was all set to do the singing, but it just didn't happen, even though Carey cowrote the song. Mariah's rep told People that Carey didn't have the time to record, but, reports the magazine, the songbird's ex-hubby, Sony Music chief Tommy Mottola, wouldn't let her sing for rival MCA/Universal, which is releasing the picture (based on the Dr. Seuss classic). Faith Hill has since recorded the song for the soundtrack.

Whatever happened to the single?
The first time you entered a music store, chances are it was because there was one song you had to have. Maybe it was "I Want to Hold Your Hand" by the Beatles, or Marvin Gaye's "I Heard it Through the Grapevine".

Mariah continues artistic growth
Her voice soars no matter what song she sings. Mariah stamps each song with pain, joy, passion, sincerity and honesty. So when she came out with a compilation album, she had a tough time selecting her songs.
