The iconic chanteuse and multi-platinum global superstar Mariah Carey proved to be a “Vision of Love” during her premiere performance of “Mariah #1 to Infinity.” Marking the beginning of her headlining residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Mariah unveiled her new show to a sold-out theater and multiple standing ovations.

Conceptualized by Mariah, directed by legendary Grammy Awards Producer Ken Ehrlich and brought to life with the help of Creative Director Raj Kapoor, “MARIAH #1 TO INFINITY” embodies the true meaning of Vegas glitz and glamour. The breathtaking production designed exclusively for The Colosseum features a six-piece live band, three back-up vocals, two DJs and ten incredible dancers choreographed by Nappytabs, the double Emmy Award-winning married choreographers Tabitha D’umo and Napoleon D’umo.
Performing 18 of her timeless and beloved Number One Hits in chronological order, Mariah takes fans on a spectacular journey through her life and career in an unforgettable evening filled with fan-favorite singles, new musical arrangements, her new song “Infinity” performed live for the first time, and many more surprises. “Vision of Love,” “Hero,” “Fantasy,” “We Belong Together” and “Touch My Body” to name a few, are among Mariah’s 18 songs to reach #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, a feat that has not been achieved by any other solo artist in music history.
In tandem with her headlining residency and groundbreaking record, Mariah will release her first album with exclusive collaboration with Epic Records, celebrating her remarkable career. For the first time ever, the album, “Mariah Carey #1 To Infinity,” will be one career-spanning chronological collection of her 18 Billboard Hot 100 #1 singles (17 self-penned), more than any solo artist in history. Arriving in stores Monday, May 18, the final track on the collection is Mariah’s breathtaking new single, “Infinity,” co-written and produced by Mariah herself.
