So, you thought Mariah Carey lost her voice and couldn’t sing? Well, true to form, the butterfly fanatic proved that she should never be written off after of one bad showing and she bounced back with stunning bonus performances of her biggest hits at the 2012 NFL kickoff concert.
Prior to her less than stellar rendition of ‘Triumphant (Get ‘Em)’ alongside Meek Mill and Rick Ross, Carey dazzled the Rockefeller Center crowd ’We Belong Together’, ‘Always Be My Baby’ and ‘Touch My Body’. Unfortunately, those showings weren’t broadcasted on television.
Watch Carey flex her impressive vocals at the 2012 NFL kickoff show below:

‘Always Be My Baby’
‘We Belong Together’
Now do you see what I meant when I reviewed Carey’s ‘Triumphant’ performance and blamed her shaky vocals on the arrangement of the song? This woman can clearly still sing and her voice is in good shape but she needs to room to breathe and belt freely. All we need is for one of Carey “yes” people to get enough backbone to tell her “no” when she gets the bright idea of performing records that have no chance of sounding good live.
