Conceptualized by Mariah, and directed by legendary Grammy Awards Producer Ken Ehrlich, “MARIAH #1 TO INFINITY”, embodies the true meaning of Vegas glitz and glamour. Designed exclusively for The Colosseum, the breathtaking production features 18 of Mariah’s timeless and beloved Number One Hits performed in chronological order taking fans on a spectacular journey through her life and career in an unforgettable evening.   “Vision of Love,” “Hero,” “Fantasy,” “We Belong Together” and “Touch My Body” to name a few, are among Mariah’s 18 songs to reach #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles (17 self-penned), a feat that has not been achieved by any other solo artist in music history.

Mariah Carey is the best-selling female artist of all time with more than 200-million albums sold.  Mariah is a singer, songwriter, and producer 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. With her distinct five-octave vocal range, prolific songwriting, and producing talent, Mariah is truly the template of the modern pop performance.

Mariah’s ongoing impact has transcended the music industry to leave an indelible imprint upon the world at large. She made her entrée into the world of independent film with her landmark performance in “WiseGirls” starring alongside Academy Award® winner Mira Sorvino and Melora Walters. In 2009, Mariah was recognized with the Breakthrough Performance Award at the Palm Spring International Film Festival for her critically acclaimed role in Lee Daniels’ “Precious.” Mariah went on to appear in Daniels’ stellar ensemble piece “The Butler” (2013).

Mariah’s latest album release, “#1 To Infinity,” arrived in stores May 18, 2015 on Epic Records/Columbia Records/Sony Legacy. For the first time ever, one career-spanning chronological collection gathered all 18 of her No. 1 singles. Included as the final track on the collection was Mariah’s breathtaking single, “Infinity” (co-written and produced by Mariah). The album serves as the set list for Mariah Carey #1 To Infinity, her critically-acclaimed, headlining residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

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.
