On the heels of the most critically acclaimed album of her career, ‘Me. I am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse,’ the best-selling female artist of all time, Mariah Carey, has confirmed a one-off New Zealand show, extending her previously announced world tour entitled “The Elusive Chanteuse Show.”
This will be Mariah’s first live show in New Zealand, playing this exclusive date at Auckland’s Vector Arena on Thursday November 13, 2014.
Mariah Carey is a true music icon and the best-selling female artist of all time with more than 220 million albums sold to date and 18 Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles (17 self-penned) including 'Fantasy', 'Always Be My Baby', 'Hero', 'Touch My Body', 'One Sweet Day', and 'We Belong Together' - more than any solo artist in history.
With her distinct five-octave vocal range, prolific songwriting, and producing talent, Mariah has defined the modern pop performance. As a singer/songwriter/producer, she has been recognized with multiple Grammy Awards, 21 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” for her outstanding achievements in songwriting, to name a few.
Mariah Carey's ongoing impact transcends the music industry to leave an indelible imprint upon the world at large. She has made substantial marks in film with critically acclaimed roles in Precious (2009) and also in Lee Daniel’s The Butler (2013). A Congressional Award recipient, Mariah has generously donated her time and energy to a range of philanthropic causes near to her heart including Save the Music, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, World Hunger Relief, and the Elton John AIDS Foundation, among many others. A tremendous supporter of children’s charities, both domestic and international, Mariah founded Camp Mariah in partnership with the Fresh Air Fund, a retreat for inner city children to explore career development.
