Mariah Carey Delivers Powerful ‘Fly Like A Bird’ Performance In Paris [Video]

Published: Saturday 8th Jun 2019 by Sam

As soul-stirring anthems go, Mariah Carey houses many in her colossal catalogue.

One of the most resonating, though, is ‘Fly Like A Bird’ from giant comeback album ‘The Emancipation Of Mimi.’

Currently on the ‘Caution World Tour,’ Mariah has been dusting off rare gems in select cities.

Lucky for concert goers in Paris, France, she set ‘Fly’ free with a spirited offering that was all-live.

Watch Mimi soar with the gospel-kissed roof-raiser after the jump…

Easily one of our favorite Mariah cuts of all-time, she did this solid justice. She’s in great vocal shape. Go Mimi!

Your thoughts?

    She´s suddendly doing so good in the European concerts. Just a few weeks ago she wasn´t in good vocal shape at the Billboards. It´s crazy. I suppose it´s the nodules.

      She’s always done better on tour with her fans versus TV. It’s obvious from the Billboard performance she was nervous.

    Fly like a bird is pure GOSPEL. Truly under-rated and one of her most powerful works. You can NOT listen to this song and not feel inspired and also Not feel some form of spiritual. She needs to sing this song in place of HERO at every show. FINALLY, B do a Mimi show where she sings the EOM album in full. But add I wish you well and faded and we good


    #FLOP ?

      The only thing you can belt out is a burp…so of course you’re bothered.

  4. Oh plz June 8, 2019

    Only delusional lambs believe this is 100% live. The high/belted notes were clearly lipped.

    • #TheTruth June 8, 2019

      I agree. It’s not 100% live.
      She seems to be in a good place vocally tho.
      And this is no shade, I love Mariah.

    I need to see closer footage but this felt 100% live and meticulously seamless with the vocal transitions and whistle notes – even if not – her vocal confidence is noticeably so much stronger than in previous live showings in other era‘s from the past 5-6 years. It feels like she’s in a good place and the crowd ate it up as well as it being and very engaging rendition of you’re watching at home and know the song well. Happy for her. ???????? ??

    The more demanding parts of the song are sonically consistent with everything else which should tell you these are not pre-recorded vocals. See her in concert for yourself and you’ll know.

  7. Karter June 8, 2019

    “Fly Like A Bird” is my absolute FAVORITE MC song…such an underrated record IMO. Yes Mariah!! ????

  8. Vernon June 8, 2019

    Yes this was live 100%

    Engineer: How much backup track do you want?
    Mariah: YES, darlingggg!

    • JOHNVIDAL June 9, 2019

      Same thing Beyonce asks for, only that for vocally basic songs.

    • Lambert June 13, 2019

      Your fave does the same thing. ?‍♀️

      Pointless to try and shade Mariah for something 90% of the industry does on a regular. She’s got nothing to prove vocally, nor does Beyoncé.

    Sounds amazing.

  12. I hate blaccck n whyte June 9, 2019

    B**** kkill the bugs and butterfly. Ewwwww,. Whitney Houston would never sing to roaches.

    , Maraiah not winning no Grammy, nomore, you can’t sing like Whitney.

    • Lambert June 13, 2019

      Mariah’s legendary status is solidified. She doesn’t need another Grammy or chart topper. Mariah doesn’t need to sing like Whitney when she’s already singing circles around her. Whitney trashed her vocals and had people walking out of her concert.

  13. I hate blaccck n whyte June 9, 2019

    When American idol was on, why didn’t Simon ask Mariah and not Whitney Houston????

    She cannot sing like Whitney. She don’t have the range. Mariah thought now Whitney dead all Grammy’s belong to her. But Beyonce who is a thief who can even breath like Whitney took next, when she don’t write,. They again skipped over Mariah for Lion King.

    Beyonce and Mariah Dont have the Wind like the voice Houston.. .

    • I hate blaccck n whyte June 9, 2019

      Why hasn’t B** do the self destruction of Mariah Carey the numerous men that do not want her what happened when she was in the mental hospital is she on medication now but yet they keep talking about Michael

      • Lambert June 13, 2019

        Somebody gave you wrong the mix of medication.

    • China June 13, 2019

      and Whitney Nor Beyonce have the SALES of Mariah. Or hits.
