Triumphant: Mariah Carey Receives BMI Icon Award

mariah carey bmi Triumphant: Mariah Carey Receives BMI Icon Award

For all her vocal prowess, Mariah Carey also serves as one of the music industry’s most seasoned and successful songwriters; a status which earned her the Icon Award last night at the BMI Urban Awards in Los Angeles.

The star-studded affair saw the likes of Fantasia and Joe celebrate the 42 year old diva with rendition of some of her biggest hits – including ‘Hero’ and ‘We Belong Together’.

Check out more pics from the night below. What’s more, That Grape Juice were in the house at the event, so be sure to keep it locked for exclusive red carpet interviews.

    If I’m not mistaken she’s (co-)written every song on each one of her albums (excluding covers) she truly deserves this award. Get ‘em!

    They are trying to honor her but they choose fantasia to sing. That is more like dishonoring. I would have any basic chick sing my song before I allow fantasia to growl and scream all over it.

    The fact that you focused on Materialistic things show that you are a pathetic person. I could, myself, point out that Beyonce’s weave looks like my old ragged mop and that that she is as exciting and interesting as raw clam. Let’s not forget that she can barely form sentences and is very fake.
