This per­for­mance will mark her Caribbean de­but. “Wel­com­ing Mariah Carey to Ja­maica’s shores is truly ex­cit­ing and we are ex­tremely pleased to

an­nounce this iconic star as

our head­line act for 2015,” says Fes­ti­val Pro­ducer Wal­ter El­more. “Her agree­ing to per­form on our stage is a tes­ta­ment to the qual­ity of our pro­duc­tion,” El­more added. “We are the only fes­ti­val in the western hemi­sphere to present Mariah Carey since her last tour in 2006.” Mariah Carey is the Best Sell­ing Fe­male Artist of All Time, log­ging more than 200 mil­lion records sold and 18 Bill­board Hot 100 No. 1 sin­gles, more than any solo artist in his­tory. With her dis­tinc­tive five-oc­tave vo­cal

Her set list for Ja­maica is ex­pected to be an ex­cit­ing mix of her big­gest fan-fa­vorite pop and dance hits, R&B bal­lads, and hip-hop jams, along with popular selections from her crit­i­cally ac­claimed CD, Me. I am Mariah…The Elu­sive Chanteuse. “I’m thrilled to be per­form­ing in Ja­maica for the first time ever,” says Mariah. “I can’t wait to con­nect with my Jamaican fans and I am re­ally look­ing for­ward to spend­ing some time ‘pon de is­land’ as well!”Ja­maica Jazz & Blues Fes­ti­val is all about

cre­at­ing mem­o­rable mu­si­cal

ex­pe­ri­ences,” says El­more.
