【Music】Mariah, Arms, Carey, Open
How does she weave those notes together with such panache, every note not just sung but quite literally embellished with utmost precision and beauty and at 0:40,, she just gave me a glimpse of Heaven,, She is hugely gifted , amazingly talented and sincere towards her art which is rare because these days you have so called singers who come dressed in a toilet seat…
Awesome! That’s all I can say…
I agree with everything you said. If XTINA would wear some damn ear monitors maybe she could hear how she sounds and fixed it.
Yes this was one of her best covers actually.
I don’t get it why did the critics hate this song so much. It sounds like a great cover to me.
HER VOICE TAKES EVERYONE TO HEAVENS, CELINE TOOKS UR TO BOREDOM XTINAS TOOKS US TO HELL. MARAH ALL THE WAY UNTUCAHBLE
I adore Mariah Carey’s voice..truly incredible..I wish to attend a live concert by her so much-3
Dieses Lied gibt mir Ruhe finden Sie hier einige Komfort. Beautiful!
At least she has good taste in music. Great job Carey.
@ThisIzTheEdge you have to remember that mariah put her interpretation on it so of course its not gonna sound like steve perry. As a musician you have to look at every piece of music as its own entity even with covers because no one is gonna sound like the original. Mariah has an untouchable melissmatic husky yet powerful voice. In her version i believe she put a feminine touch on this song and she interpreted it well. I felt the emotion.
I don’t think she could fuck up any song.
25 years and such a murder voice!
She invented the word “talent”.
Wow. People are saying Mariah Carey’s voice is ugly? Who, in their right mind, would say that Mariah’s voice is ugly? Even if you’re not a fan, to say that Mariah cannot sing means that you must be either insane or completely tone deaf and ignorant. You may not like her as a person, but that voice…is one of the greatest voices ever. The best, in my opinion. You are stupid if you think that it is not good.
Mariah is an incredible singer…BUT…Steve Perry’s version sounds so much better. Mariah sings it, Steve Perry OWNS it! There are these subtle little ways his voice is that makes it so much better, like the part that goes “wanting you neaaaaar” – suddenly gets this stretched out sound that MC’s version doesn’t. I was really hoping to like MC’s verison when I first heard it. And her studio muscians – come on now, they pale in comparrison to the MASTERs in JOURNEY- Neal, Ross, Cain, Smith!!!
Wow… people who can’t get over the fact that she covered the song. Before you start spewing bullshit about what you think you know about music do some research. Perry himself praised her on the song and even endorsed it. Perry was such a musician that he recognized her talent and the voice she has. Stupid idiots…. smh.
See my video singing “Open Arms” =)
This period, her voice unbeatable!! Acrobatic, melismatic, layering and texture, so warm and mesmerizing. So now I come to you with open arms,,
