Mariah Carey, the queen of Pop, is arguably one of the best singers in the world. With the most distinctive and recognizable voice in the history of recorded music, Mariah Carey has greatly transformed the music industry. No one could have guessed a little girl from New York City would have such a big voice that would redefine what it means to be a superstar. There is no other singer who is better than Mariah Carey, she is the voice of our generation. Her number one singles eclipsed great artists like Elvis Presley (seventeen), Michael Jackson (thirteen), Madonna (twelve), The Supremes (eleven), and Whitney Houston (seven); currently, Carey has more number ones than any currently active recording artist. From her remarkable vocal range, melismatic singing, and impact in music she is the most influential vocal stylist of the last two decades.
