Favourite Songs 1

mariah careyI have a variety of songs that I keep on a “favourites” list. Mostly ballad style; not much rock, even classic.

Tonight I was reminded of one of my favourite motivational songs, Hero, written and performed by Mariah Carey in 1993, when Mariah was 23 years old. I am always very impressed when I learn that an artist both writes and performs some of their own hits. Shania Twain wrote / co-wrote many of her big hits, a very impressive record indeed.

Hero is definitely not Mariah’s regular song style, yet went on to be one of her best known hits.

Here, from YouTube, is a concert version, directed by Larry Jordan, which is derived from Carey’s 1993 concert at Proctor Theatre, in Schenectady, New York.
