Pop diva Mariah Carey has made no secret of the difficulties she experienced while pregnant with twins Monroe and Moroccan. Difficulties she says she was still healing from after giving birth last April.
However, almost one year after delivering “dem babies”, it appears the ‘We Belong Together’ singer is ready to go back to her day job – performing.
Details after the jump…
Carey previously confirmed set at Morocco’s Mawazine Festival this May was to serve as her first major booking post-pregnancy, however it has today been announced that the songbird will be taking to the stage much earlier.
The 41 year old has signed on as one of the headlining acts at the Plot Your Escape Concert this Saturday (March 3rd). Set to be televised live on Jimmy Kimmel, the extravaganza will see 4 concerts staged (in LA, NYC, Chicago, and New Orleans), with the night’s performances interwoven into one epic transmission.
Carey, who will perform at the New York show, is joined by the likes of Diddy and other soon to be announced acts.
Never much of a performer in the traditional sense, Mariah’s live appeal has always been her voice. And while recent years had shaved a considerable amount of horse-power and octaves from her iconic range, pregnancy (and the discipline it entailed) restored much of it (see: 2010’s ‘Merry Christmas II You’). Here’s hoping, the voice we know, love, and critique, is back at its incomparable best.
