Mariah Lights Up The Empire State Building
The singer will flick a switch on a scale model of the iconic tower at a ceremony on Friday (25Apr08) - and when the sun goes down in the city, the building will glow her favourite colours.
The city is honouring native New Yorker Carey, whose new LP E=MC2 this week (23Apr08) topped the Billboard chart with first week sales of 463,000.
Earlier on Friday, she performed a live free gig for fans in the city's Times Square, which was broadcast on U.S. TV breakfast show Good Morning America.
It's proving to be a big year for the 38-year-old; earlier this month (Apr08) she achieved her 18th number one single in America, lifting her above Elvis Presley and just behind the Beatles, who managed 20.
