Posted by admin on Mar 24, 2014

Mariah Carey was born on March 27, 1969 or 1970, on Long Island, in Huntington, New York. Her father, Alfred Roy, was of African American and Venezuelan (including Afro-Venezuelan) descent, while her mother, Patricia (née Hickey), is of white Irish descent.

The last name Carey was the product of a name-change by her Venezuelan grandfather, Francisco Nuñez, after emigrating to New York. Patricia’s father died while she was young; however, she inherited his passion for music.
