Press Release

Musical Superstars Mariah Carey and Tim McGraw to perform at NBC's Macy's Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular

Multi-Faceted Entertainer Nick Cannon to Host the Live Telecast

New York - May 28, 2013 - NBC celebrates the nation's 237th birthday with a live broadcast of the "Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular," featuring all-star performances by multi-platinum singer-songwriter Mariah Carey, GRAMMY® Award winning Tim McGraw and others. Hosted by Nick Cannon of NBC's "America's Got Talent," the two-hour show will air on Thursday, July 4th from 8-10 p.m. ET, with an encore presentation of the second hour of the fireworks special airing at 10 p.m.

"Mariah Carey and Tim McGraw are the perfect complement to Macy's exceptional fireworks display," said Doug Vaughan, EVP of Specials and Late Night Programming for NBC Entertainment. "NBC is thrilled to have these amazing artists join us in celebrating America's birthday."

Mariah Carey is the best-selling female artist of all time with more than 200 million albums sold and a ground-breaking career total of 224 #1 Billboard hits, including an unprecedented 18 #1 Hot 100 singles, the most of any solo artist in history! Mariah's brand new single, "#Beautiful" a collaboration with Miguel, has won critical raves and is already #1 in over 30 countries and a certified radio smash. "#Beautiful" is the lead single from Mariah's new album. With her world renowned voice and her award-winning songwriting and producing and longevity she has clearly earned her place at the top of music's pantheon. As a singer/songwriter/ producer, she has been recognized with five GRAMMY® Awards, nine American Music Awards, Billboard's Artist of the Decade Award, the World Music Award for World's Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium, and BMI's Icon Award for her outstanding achievements in songwriting, to name a few.

Tim McGraw was recently certified as the most-played country artist of the past 20 years. His latest album, TWO LANES OF FREEDOM, debuted at No. one on the Billboard Country Albums chart marking his 14th career No. one debut. Since the release of his first album in 1993, McGraw has sold over 40 million albums, dominated the charts with 33 No. one singles, won three GRAMMY’s, 15 ACM Awards, 12 CMA Awards and 10 AMA’s, while simultaneously maintaining a parallel career as a successful actor in such films as the Oscar nominated “The Blind Side,” ”Country Strong,” and “Friday Night Lights” —as well as hosting ”Saturday Night Live,” a rare honor for a singer in any genre.

Cited by People magazine as one of the top 10 most successful young people in Hollywood and featured on the covers of magazine's such as Complex and Black Enterprises' 40 Under 40, Nick Cannon is a successful multi-faceted entertainer: film star, comedian, TV and radio host, musician, writer, director, executive producer and philanthropist. Cannon currently serves as host of NBC's hit "America's Got Talent," and Cannon's NCredible Entertainment banner.

The 37th annual Macy's 4th of July Fireworks® is the nation's largest patriotic pyrotechnic display with over 40,000 fireworks igniting the sky over the Hudson River. This year's show will also feature a first-ever, one-of-a-kind collaboration with global superstar Usher.

For the first time in the history of the show, a superstar artist is collaborating with Macy's creative and pyrotechnic teams. Lending his artistic inspiration and talent, eight-time Grammy® Award-winning artist Usher is curating the overall design of the show, entitled "It Begins with A Spark." From the rousing musical selections to the spectacular Fireworks in the sky, Usher is putting his visionary stamp on the nation's biggest Independence Day party

"This year Macy's 4th of July Fireworks will be transformed into a giant party in the sky captivating audiences along the Hudson River and on television screens across the country," Amy Kule, executive producer of Macy's 4th of July Fireworks. "Since 1976, Macy's Fireworks have grown in scale and artistry. With this collaboration with Usher, we are taking the show to the next level of entertainment spectacle, combining the very best of Macy's Fireworks with Usher's unparalleled artistic vision."

The telecast is a production of Universal Television in association with Macy's. It is produced by Brad Lachman Productions with Lachman serving as executive producer. Bill Bracken is producer. Lachman's credits include a variety of NBC specials, including the "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade," "Christmas in Rockefeller Center," in addition to "Don't Forget the Lyrics!" and a variety of other projects.

Rodney Jerkins aka Darkchild talks working on Mariah's new album

Extract from an interview with The Source:

Q: What upcoming projects can you share? Are you working with Britney Spears? Mariah Carey?

RJ: I was working with Britney actually at the end of the year.  She had me come on X-Factor show and do something with her, so we’ll see what happens if we get a chance to work together.  I am working with Mariah, I am working with Jennifer Lopez.  I just finished a couple songs with Jessie J over in London and I also wrote a couple of songs that are being considered for Rihanna’s new album, so there’s a lot of good stuff happening so we’ll see…I’m always busy, but it’s all good, never too busy for my baby.

Q: Can you speak about working with Mariah Carey in the studio on her upcoming album?

RJ: Yeah, Mariah’s great.  We had a chance to write together and it was really cool.  She’s a pro, she’s a real pro and relatable, too.  She has two children, two beautiful kids and we got a chance to really get to know her and Nick and the kids doing this project and they just bring that class act family and you know it’s good to have friends like that.

Mariah Carey 's #Beautiful feat. Miguel debuts at #24 on Billboard's Hot 100

The Hot 100's highest debut belongs to Mariah Carey's "#Beautiful," featuring Miguel, which begins at No. 24. The track launched on Hot 100 Airplay at No. 44 last week with 31 million impressions after just two days of airplay, aided heavily on its first day (May 6) by coordinated airplay on Clear Channel Media and Entertainment stations. This week, with that hefty first day of spins now in the previous tracking period, "#Beautiful" maintains its No. 44 Hot 100 Airplay rank and 31 million in audience (up less than 1%). Following its first full week of sales, it enters Hot Digital Songs at No. 10 (114,000), marking her eighth top 10 on the tally and first since "Obsessed" reached No. 6 in 2009. "#Beautiful" falls shy of the Streaming Songs chart with 461,000 first-week streams.

The lead single from Carey's forthcoming 13th studio album charges 32-7 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and 16-2 on R&B Songs and debuts at No. 1 on R&B Digital Songs.

Check tomorrow (May 16), when all rankings, including the Hot 100, Hot Digital Songs, Hot 100 Airplay, Streaming Songs and On-Demand Songs will be refreshed, as they are each Thursday.

Mariah Carey Planning a World Tour

On the heels of her buzzed-about new single with Miguel, "#Beautiful," a source tells Us Weekly that the singer is in the midst of planning a brand new world tour.

"Due to the smash success of '#Beautiful,'" fans are clamoring as Mariah makes plans for a world tour," the source explains to Us. So far, "#Beautiful" has hit number one in 25 countries and the top five in 45. (note: on iTunes)

The tour would be the Grammy winner's first global trek since 2004 (note: 2003), when she was on her Charmbracelet world tour. In 2010, she jet-set on her Angels Advocate tour, where she performed in the U.S., Egypt, Brazil and Singapore.

It should make an impressive debut on next week's Hot 100 after its first full week of sales, along with its streaming data, are added to next week's Hot 100 tabulation.

Mariah Carey Will Sing Medley of Hits on “American Idol” Finale ?

Mariah Carey will sing a medley of her hits– and there are a lot of them– on the season finale of “American Idol” on May 16th. Carey hasn’t performed on “Idol” this season yet. But she will debut her new single featuring Miguel, called “#Beautiful,” on Wednesday’s “Idol” May 8th. The single is already a huge hit after just a day or more in release. “Beautiful” was picked up 65 Top 40 stations and a bunch more today. You can hear it literally in every major market right now, which means by the “Idol” finale “Beautiful” may be another Mariah Carey number 1 song.

Exclusive Interview With Mariah Carey
Five-time GRAMMY winner discusses her latest single "#Beautiful" featuring Miguel

On May 6 five-time GRAMMY winner Mariah Carey released "#Beautiful" featuring fellow GRAMMY winner Miguel, the lead track from her forthcoming album due later this year. Prior to the single's release, Carey participated in an exclusive interview with on the set of "American Idol" to discuss "#Beautiful" and collaborating with Miguel.

"The best part of making music, for me, is collaborating and working with new people and fresh sounds and all those things that gets people excited to continue in this business that we all love so much," said Carey. "The feedback that's been coming to us is astonishing. I feel like this is the first record I've ever released."

Considered the best-selling female artist to emerge in the '90s, Huntington, N.Y., native Carey rose to stardom on the strength of her five-octave range. Carey released her self-titled debut album in 1990, which reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and spawned four No. 1 singles and earned her two GRAMMY Awards for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female for "Vision Of Love."

Carey has released more than 15 Top 10 albums, including Daydream (1995) and The Emancipation Of Mimi (2005), both of which peaked at No. 1 and earned GRAMMY nominations for Album Of The Year. With the release of 2008's E=MC2, Carey scored her 18th No. 1 hit with "Touch My Body," placing her second to the Beatles for the most chart-topping singles. Carey's most recent studio album, 2009's Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel, climbed to No. 3 and featured the Top 10 hit "Obsessed."

Co-produced and co-written by Carey and Miguel, "#Beautiful" will be featured on Carey's 13th studio album, which is due in summer 2013 and features production from GRAMMY winners The-Dream, Jermaine Dupri, Hit-Boy, and Rodney Jerkins, among others. The video for "#Beautiful" will premiere May 8 on "American Idol," on which Carey is currently a judge.

Mariah Carey Talks ‘#Beautiful,’ Working With ‘Idol’ Girls on New Album

The wait for Mariah Carey‘s highly anticipated track with Miguel, “#Beautiful,” is officially over.

The singer and American Idol judge phoned in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest to chat about the hot new single and working with the Grammy-winning crooner, as well as how she used Idol finalists Candice, Kree, and Angie’s vocals as backup on another new track!

As for Miguel, Mariah says: “I’m a huge fan of his music and I think everybody is so blown away by him right now … We got together, he had starting writing this song with just the guitar riff… and I have to say this about him as a collaborator, sometimes when you haven’t worked with somebody you don’t know really what they do in the studio …and if they have the same kind of love for music that I have … and he’s the truth. We just wanted to do something different that has a texture that feels fresh.”

So how does Mariah’s hit-making process work?

“It depends on who I’m working with, but were talking if I go to ATL [Atlanta] and go to Southside studio to Jermaine Dupri, who I wrote ‘Always Be My Baby’ with…he literally has a club in his studio and a basketball court…let’s say I’m working with Jermaine, we may have an inspiration like, ‘This beat would be interesting’ or a throwback to this moment he will often say like, when I revealed ‘Touch My Body’ I wrote that with The-Dream, and Jermaine said, ‘I think we should go with that verse.’ And he was right because it went and was a nice hit.”

Mariah also revealed the wait for her album won’t be too long either. “Probably we’re talking about earlier than mid-summer, which is a lot of pressure on me because I want these last few records to be just as good as the first records I started.”

And she will have some special guest on her upcoming album, including the Idol finalists she’s been mentoring. “I was in the studio with Candice, Kree, and Angie last night because selfishly, I wanted to get some background vocals from them on another record as I did my mentoring moment…and just give them a glimpse…I said, ‘I’m wearing a totally different hat right now, this is me the producer, that goes quickly through the part but we have to be precise,’ but the girls only had a couple hours and I didn’t want to push them, but it was a great experience…so they did [backup] for a different song which I will not reveal the title yet.”

Speaking of Idol, Mariah will premiere the music video for “#Beautiful” on the show this coming Wednesday. The singer describes the video as “the antithesis of the person you see on American Idol … I was multitasking by editing the final bits with my editor and the girls got to see a bit of that and talk about how important it is to maintain some creative control from the beginning of your career … because a lot of artists think ‘I’m not allowed to do this. I’m not allowed to do that.’ It wasn’t until later … it’s not like I first started and got my record deal as a teenage girl and I think I can boss people around and be like, ‘Hey, wait I’m coming to fix that video!’ I didn’t even know about lighting darling, I didn’t even know we didn’t like bad lighting.”

Along with celebrating the release of a new single, Mariah also celebrated her fifth wedding anniversary with husband Nick Cannon at Disneyland, where they sealed the night with a kiss as fireworks went off. So how did they time that perfectly? Mariah joked: “Actually it just happened, nobody planned it. I think in Disneyland it just magically occurs.”

”My little girl is going to be appearing on the album, I will say that. She can’t really put a complete sentence together … she was 1-years-old when she started … but she did a good job!”

Mariah Carey Negotiating for Big “American Idol” Finale Performance ?

It’s not completely a done deal, but I’m told this will happen: Mariah Carey will perform on the “American Idol” finale on May 16th. She will sing her brand new single called “#Beautiful.” (That’s  hashtag, if you were wondering.) I told you last night exclusively that Mariah’s video of “#Beautiful” will debut on this Wednesday’s “Idol.”

One thing still not certain: who will sing it with her? Miguel, who performs the duet on the single, is on tour and may not be able to do it. He’s got to be in Liverpool, England two days later to open for Alicia Keys. Sources say something very cool is in the works. (Nick Cannon, maybe? Nicki Minaj? Stay tuned.)

It does seem like with falling ratings and re-considerations, Mariah and “Idol” are making up instead of breaking up. Isn’t that swell? I do hope when she performs”#Beautiful” on “Idol,” Mariah sings a slightly longer version than the one being released this Monday to radio stations at 7am. It’s a great song and deserves a big finale. Carey will jump from the “Idol” finale to a special appearance on “Good Morning America” just eight days later on May 24th.

Did I tell you yesterday that “#Beautiful” reminds me of “Dreamlover,” Mariah’s 1993 smash? It’s got that feel. It’s also got a cool retro vibe. There’s some static in the background and it sounds like a record — a 45 rpm record– is playing.

Mariah Carey Exclusives: New Video Will Debut on “Idol,” New Album Coming, New Manager Hired

Mariah Carey runs to the rescue of “American Idol.” With ratings precariously low, and “The Voice” playing directly against it next Wednesday, “American Idol” needed something to give it a boost. That brings Mariah to the story. She’ll debut the new video for her new song, “Beautiful,” on the show on May 8th. “Beautiful” is a mid tempo pop song with an usually catchy and sophisticated melody. It’s co-written, sung and produced by newish sensation Miguel. I’ve heard “Beautiful” and it’s a hit. A real hit that fans will sing along with.

The rather short–about 3 minutes, 3 seconds– single opens with Miguel singing to an acoustic guitar. After the first verse and chorus, Mariah makes a spine-tingling entrance. I am told her album, still unnamed, is just in this vein– lots of great singing, very little singing, no hip hop, all songs with a capital S. My only peeve about “Beautiful” is that it’s too short– I think the album version should be longer.

And the album– it’s coming sometime between June 25th and July 7th, my sources say. First Island DefJam has to launch Kanye West’s new album, recorded in Paris, on June 18th. That’s confirmed also, but no title has been given. It should be called “Keeping Up with the Kardashians– Literally.”

And here’s another scoop: while we were sleeping, Mariah changed managers. She and Randy Jackson decided their schedules were too hectic. So Carey has signed with Red Light, the same place Steven Tyler just joined. Red Light is the brainchild of Corin Capshaw, the mastermind behind Dave Matthews. It’s a hot hot agency.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon Renew Their Vows – at Disneyland

It was a storybook 5th anniversary – and happy 2nd birthday treat for their twins – as Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon renewed their vows at the Happiest Place on Earth, California's Disneyland, on Tuesday night.

All dressed up in matching prince and princess costumes, Carey and daughter Monroe were picked up in a horse-drawn Crystal Carriage from a Dream Suite inside the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, then taken to Main Street to meet Cannon and son Moroccan. Together the family proceeded to Sleeping Beauty Castle, for the vow renewals.

"Do you believe in fairy tales?" was the theme for the ceremony – which concluded with fireworks over the castle spires, a pyrotechnic display that reportedly came as a total surprise to Carey and the couple's 250 guests.

What followed was a reception in Fantasyland, deejayed by Cannon and accented by 15,000 flowers imported from South Africa, Holland and France and 10,000 crystals. Plus, guests enjoyed access to the Matterhorn Bobsleds, Peter Pan's Flight, Snow White's Adventures and the King Arthur Carousel, all of which were kept running.

Before the renewal of the vows, Moroccan and Monroe celebrated their birthdays with yet another famous couple: Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
