Five-time Grammy Award winner singer Mariah Carey took the stage at the Live Park Amphitheater in Rishon Lezion, in central Israel, Tuesday, and gave audiences a performance to remember for years to come.

Carey offered up a polished, Las Vegas-style show, complete with her amazing, five-octave vocal range, a golden microphone, and an array of stunning outfits.
Even before hitting the first note, Carey bonded with the 12,000-strong audience, something she made sure to do throughout the show, saying, “Hello Israel,” “I love you,” and “thank you,” in Hebrew, and repeating again and again how happy she was to be here.
Together with her sidekick, R&B singer Trey Lorenz, Carey performed several duets, including “I’ll Be There,” which she dedicated to the late Michael Jackson.
Carey’s show featured a string of pop, soul, and R&B hits, which Israeli fans happily sang along with her, including “Emotion,” “Shake it Off,” and “My Home,” proving it is not for nothing that she is the only solo artist to have had 18 Billboard No.1 singles.
Carey’s performance in Israel was not originally part of her tour schedule. Next time, let’s hope she performs at the Caesarea amphitheater.
