Mariah Carey has been chosen to be honoured with the Icon Award at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, which will be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on 1 May. The “Fantasy” singer is one of the best-selling artists of all time and throughout her career she has snatched 14 Billboard Music Awards, 10 American Music Awards, and five Grammy Awards.
Since she debuted on the music scene first in 1990, Carey had launched a streak of extremely successful hits and smashed records. Over the next three decades, she never stopped ruling the charts and producing some of today’s iconic tracks and anthems that have shaped pop culture along the way.
She is also set to perform a medley of her greatest hits at the award show. She last performed at the Billboard Music Awards in 2015, and her most recent studio album ‘Caution’ is her eighth number one on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
She will be joining a handful of previous legendary recipients for this award, including Janet Jackson, Cher, Celine Dion, Jennifer Lopez, Prince, Stevie Wonder and Neil Diamond.
