Forget performing in her living room, Mariah Carey closed out FOX presents The iHeartRadio Living Room Concert for America with a once in a lifetime intimate performance from her home studio in New York City.
The legendary pop singer took a break from making her viral hand-washing videos with her kids — much of Mariah's quarantine has been spent teaching us how to wash our hands to her classic hits — to team up with celebrities from across the country to pay tribute to those on the frontlines of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
"I just wanted to say hi to everybody out there that's staying home and keeping up the morale," Mariah began her set. "This is not easy by yourself so I'm very thankful we have Daniel Moore in his home studio working, playing some nice piano for us. And I want to dedicate this one to [my children] 'Dem Babies' for being so patient and staying here with me at home and not complaining too much."
Mariah then broke out into her 1995 hit "Always Be My Baby."
You can support two of many charitable organizations that are helping victims and first responders during this difficult time —Feeding America and First Responders Children's Foundation. Every dollar raised from the COVID-19 response fund for Feeding America will be used to get food and funds to local food banks across the US and FOX Entertainment is matching the first $100,000 donated from supporters. Money raised for First Responders Children's Foundation will help support those first responder families who are enduring financial hardship due to the coronavirus outbreak.
