Mariah Carey is the best-selling female artist of all time with more than 200 million albums sold to date and 18 Billboard No. 1 singles (17 self-penned), more than any solo artist in history. As a singer/songwriter/producer, Carey has been recognized with multiple 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, to name a few. She has two consecutive and unparalleled Billboard Song of the Decade titles: "One Sweet Day" (with Boyz II Men) and "We Belong Together," further marking her massive presence on the charts since her 1990 song debut "Vision of Love." She recently made a substantial mark in film with her critically acclaimed role as a social worker in "Precious," the 2009 film based on the novel "Push," by Sapphire. As a Congressional Award recipient, Carey has donated her time and energy to a range of domestic and international philanthropic causes, including The Fresh Air Fund/Camp Mariah (a retreat where inner-city children explore career development), Save the Music Foundation and Make-a-Wish Foundation. Carey is currently in the studio, writing, recording and executive-producing her next album for the Island Def Jam Music Group, with the lead No. 1 Billboard Dance single "Triumphant (Get 'Em)." Carey's two Christmas albums - "Merry Christmas" and "Merry Christmas II YOU" continue to be annual bestsellers. Both holiday CDs feature her self-penned, timeless holiday hit, "All I Want for Christmas Is You," which is back at No. 1 on Billboard's Holiday Digital Songs chart! Carey will next appear as a judge on the 12th season of "American Idol."
