Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey (born March 27, 1969 or 1970) is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and record producer. Referred to as the "Songbird Supreme" by Guinness World Records, she is noted for her five-octave vocal range, melismatic singing style, and signature use of the whistle register.

She rose to fame in 1990 after signing to Columbia Records and releasing her eponymous debut album, which topped the U.S. Billboard 200 for eleven consecutive weeks. Soon after, Carey became the only artist ever to have their first five singles reach number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, from "Vision of Love" to "Emotions".

At the start of this year Rolling Stone ran a list of The 200 Greatest Singers of All Time. Like all good list-making, it contained some undeniable truths (Aretha Franklin topped the poll) and some provocative decisions to get the people going.

Celine Dion fans, for example, were so outraged by her not making the list in any capacity that they protested outside the publication's offices.

In addition to Dion's fans, the list has also riled Chaka Khan, who landed at No.29 on the final list, sandwiched between Hank Williams and Mahalia Jackson.

Khan was asked about her position in a new interview with The Originals podcast and her response was refreshingly undiplomatic, taking shots at her peers, some of the younger artists who were placed higher than her, and those involved in compiling the list. “I didn’t even know what the hell you were talking about, so obviously this don’t mean a great deal to me,” she told host Andrew Goldman. “These people don’t quantify or validate me in any way.” Read Next: Chaka Khan, sampled on Kanye West’s “Through The Wire,” calls the song “stupid” Once she started hearing names and numbers, however, Khan's interest was piqued.
