Mariah Carey - Neither Rain, Nor Snow, Nor Broken Arms Stay Mariah Carey's New York Philharmonic Charity Event

Subscribe to Mariah Carey alerts

Maybe there’s a force in the universe capable of stopping Mariah Carey from performing, but it hasn’t been found yet. A broken arm certainly isn’t an obstacle, as MiMi (is that still a thing?) made it clear, when she performed at the e Major League Baseball All-Star Charity Concert, benefiting relief efforts for Hurricane Sandy. Carey rocked up to the event at Central Park’s great lawn, sporting a sparkly white Natalia Danilova gown – with a fluffy white sling to match.

Do you think Mariah makes the sling work?

Of course, Carey didn’t miss the excellent opportunity and joked with the crowd. "I'm not in the best of health here," she said, pointing to her "fanciful" sling: "It was us getting creative." As a finishing touch, she draped it in a white fur stole — by Gucci, no less. "Is this working? Do we like it?" she rhetorically asked the crowd, which roared its approval. She might not have been in tip top shape, but the crowd didn’t seem to mind, as the singer powered through two ballads - My All and Looking In.

It might be even better in black.

Carey excused herself to the spectators, saying: "This requires a bit more stability than I have right now," and invited some audience participation. Ever a fan of all things theatrical, Mariah went into intermission with a nod to the audience. "Wait for me. I love you madly, I love you madly," she called, before disappearing backstage, only to return moments later, all business in a black dress this time – and a sling to match. Sje apologized, saying: "I'm sorry if I was a little emotional before. I’m in a bit of pain.”

She then went on to perform her newest release #Beautiful, before wrapping the gig with a well-known crowd pleaser Hero. Carey’s impassioned, if a bit over-dramatic performance. The singer performed as a guest of the New York Philharmonic and performed all her tunes with the expert accompaniment of the orchestra’s talented musicians.

As always, a crowd pleaser.

her arm isn't broken just over playing a relocated shoulder-once they are back in place they don't hurt-especially with all the morphine she is getting for it-probably slammed one right before the show-besides self inflicted injury do to vanity and stupidity she crushed herself like a sac of lard falling from 2 stories -she fell from a 2 foot pedestal and hit with such force that she pop out her shoulder and cracked a ribbed -that's some weight-and complete lack of any coordination-the sling sure didn't get in the way of her flopping out her udders but it did hide her gut-for a sling to be efficient it should be up high that isn't doing anything but being a prop for all the sympathy she could get-as usually MeMe makes a charity event all about MeMe with a bunch of made up drama-and don't think for a moment she did it for charity-she got paid -to lipsync and no one gave her sh--t this time cause she is "such a trooper" to do it injured -fake poser cow-
