Maria Carey Is The Musical Miracle of The Year!

Maria Carey was the first personality I featured on my Orikinla O's Blog when she just released "The Emancipation of Mimi" and it was just like "Let us just wait and see" if this new album will rescue Maria Carey from going downhill in her fairy tale career in Pop music. And guess what?

Maria Carey is back!

She is not only back, but she is making history as the biggest comeback in the music industry. "Mimi" has garnered eight Grammy Award nominations with the CD's first single, "We Belong Together" being nominated for album of the year and record of the year. "We Belong Together" ruled the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for 14 weeks, longer than any other song this year. And just last week, "Don't Forget About Us" the first single from the recent "Mimi" reissue, climbed to the top rung of the singles chart to move Carey a step closer to the Beatles' all-time record of 20 No. 1 hits. She is now tied with Elvis Presley at No. 2 on the all-time Hot 100 list with 17 chart-topping singles.

Mariah Carey is giving rap star 50 Cent a run in down-to-the-wire race for best-selling U.S. album of 2005.

As of Christmas Day, 50 Cent stood at No. 1 in the United States with 4.8 million copies of sophomore album "The Massacre" sold since March, according to the latest figures

Maria Carey is closing in rapidly on the rapper with her latest Grammy-nominated collection, "The Emancipation of Mimi" which has tallied sales of 4.6 million since its release in April, Nielsen SoundScan reported.

I am very happy for Maria Carey! And her turn-around is an inspiration to millions of others in the world who think they are going down hill and they are ignorant of how their faith can turn them around and put them back on track on the roller coaster of success and stardom as Maria Carey is on top of the world now!

Don't give up! And you will make it!

Let the Musical Miracle of Maria Carey inspire you as we celebrate with her and as we look forward to a beautiful and wonderful New Year 2006!
