Mariah Carey Honored By Genius

Such great news for one of America's greatest singers. On November 14 Mariah was honored by Genius at a Genius Level Event. If you don’t know what Genius is, it is the world's largest encyclopedia of music. Powered by its community, in-house creative team, and the artists themselves, Genius serves music knowledge to over 100 million people each month on and everywhere music fans connect across the internet. The event took place in Brooklyn on Wednesday, November 14, in conversation with veteran music journalist and Genius’ Head of Artist Relations, Rob Markman. The latest Genius Level came just days before the release of Carey’s 15th studio album, Caution, which dropped on Friday, November 16. “People know Mariah Carey is a voice for the ages, but not as many people realize she’s also one of our greatest songwriters. Her work behind the scenes and on stage set a new bar for solo artists, and her collaborations with everyone from Walter Afanasieff to Jermaine Dupri broke new ground in music,” said Elizabeth Milch, Genius’s Director of Content. “Mariah is responsible for lyrics, melodies, and arrangements that we love to sing. albeit not always in five octaves. She’s the pinnacle of a genius-level artist and we couldn’t be more excited to celebrate her artistic impact.” Previous Genius Level honorees include DJ Premier, The-Dream, and Nicki Minaj. Mariah has worked with some of Isina’s mentors in the past and everyone here is so proud of her for achieving this award!
