Mariah Carey, international superstar and one of the best-selling female artist of all time, will be returning to the Hawaii stage this fall with her “Sweet Sweet Fantasy” tour. It has been 18 years since Mariah Carey last performed in Hawaii, and joining her for the concert will be Smollett, who plays singer Jamal Lyon on “Empire,” which follows the flamboyant founding family of a hip-hop music company.
Carey’s five-octave range has helped her rack up 18 No. 1 singles on Billboard’s Hot 100 — only the Beatles have more, with 20 — including her debut “Vision of Love,” “We Belong Together,” “One Sweet Day” (with Boyz II Men) and “Fantasy.”
She has sold more than 60 million albums in the U.S. alone and in 2013 was ranked by Billboard as the fifth-biggest chart act of the rock era.
