When Mariah Carey performed during at the Mawazine Festival in Morocco last week, the diva was criticised for her inconsistent vocals. However, at Sporting Monte-Carlo in Monaco this weekend, she proved that her voice is still in fantastic shape.
Powerful, rich and clear, Carey’s voice shined during a rendition of her megahit ‘Hero’. However, the show came to an abrupt end when an excited fan stormed the stage to get a picture with her. Naturally, Carey smiled for the camera while slamming her security with the same breath.

‘Underneath the Stars’
Although ‘Hero’ is far from a difficult song for Carey to sing, her voice was in excellent form and she proved that her midrange belting is truly a strong point. Hopefully, she considers that fact while crafting material for her new album so that she could handle those new songs live without a backtrack.
Really, nobody expects Carey to sound similar to her 20-year old self. Strong midrange belts, high falsetto, a few of her trademark whistle notes and a round of tricky vocal runs would be more than enough to satisfy people. Besides, who else can do all of that? Certainly not Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Adele, Ke$ha, Nicki Minaj or Alicia Keys.
