For over 20 years Mariah Carey has been part of our lives. She’s brought us hit after hit and dazzled us with a voice like none other. Today, the woman behind jams like “Emotions,” “Honey,” “Butterfly,” “We Belong Together” and countless others celebrates her 43rd birthday.

With 13 albums under her belt, 200 million albums sold and a record breaking 18 number one hits, Carey rightly lands a place in our hearts as one of the greatest recording artists of all time.

Her husband, Nick Cannon, tweeted this message earlier this morning, “Today is the day that my Angelic Soul Mate was born! Time to celebrate! Time to get festive! I love you @MariahCarey KKLB.”

Join us in wishing her a very happy birthday!
