Mariah Carey may reign as one of the greatest voices of all time, but she remains oh so embracing of the young vocalists she inspired.
Case in point JoJo.
Mimi invited the songbird to join her backstage at her ‘Butterfly Returns’ residency; and together with her background vocalists, the singing supernovas took vocal flight with ‘Everything Fades Away’ from 1993’s ‘Music Box.’
Watch them soar after the jump…
Jo took to her social media afterwards to share a message of gratitude to MC:
“typing this from beyond the grave, please bear with me. @mariahcarey is my idol. the reason I sing. listening to her- I’m STILL learning and will forever be a student of her. Last night I had the honor of experiencing firsthand the generosity, graciousness, and beauty inside and out this woman possesses. Not only is her Vegas residency nonstop AMAZING- spending time with the queen backstage was everything I could have hoped for. As you can see, I am fully on cloud 9. Really soaking in this MOMENT. MC, not only is your voice from out or this world, but you are one of the greatest songwriters of all time. I aspire to have the longevity you have. And to make other singers who are coming up after me feel the way you made me feel last night. Thank you. I respect you. And I love you.
Forever your lamb,
