Mariah Carey attracted the largest crowd to Times Square since 31 December (04) this morning (12APR05), when she performed a live concert at the New York City landmark.

The sexy singer launched her new album The Emancipation Of Mimi with a special party for thousands of fans at the bustling "crossroads of the world".

She was joined by rap mogul Jermaine Dupri as they performed their runaway hit IT'S LIKE THAT, before showcasing her new track WE BELONG TOGETHER and then dancing with a full choir as she sang her 1991 track MAKE IT HAPPEN.

But the big treat came for Carey's teen pal CALEB BOULTER, who was able to watch the singer perform live for the fourth time.

Boulter, who is battling tuberous sclerosis, says, "I met Mariah through the MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION. She has been a very big inspiration for me and her music has been my life preserver."

The meteorology student joined Carey onstage at the end of her performance, which was broadcast live on breakfast show Good Morning America.
