To honor Mariah Carey, the #1 most successful female recording artist of all time, The Empire State Building in NYC was lit up this past weekend (April 25th â€“ 28th) in Mariah's honor. A lighting ceremony took place at the Empire State Building on Friday April 25th, where Mariah flipped the light switch on a scale model of the Empire State Building. The Empire State Building Tower was lit in lavender, pink and white lights all weekend to celebrate the album color motif of Mariah's new # 1 album E=MC2. Antonio â€œLAâ€ Reid, Chairman, Island Def Jam Music Group attended the ceremony with Mariah to help celebrate this momentous occasion.
Also on hand to take part in the ceremony with Mariah were Lynn & Davidia, two lucky members of Mariahâ€™s official fan club Honey B. Fly. If you would like a chance to meet Mariah and attend other events such as this, sign up for Honey B. Fly now! Lynn:
Yesterday at the Empire it was sooo hot!!! Mariah was completely relaxed and she wasn't rushed so it was nice to meet her in a setting like that I won the tickets so me and Davidia were the only ones, besides the press, that went up to the top of the Empire with her... we actually went in the elevator with AJ who used to work on BET and now I think he is on E and he chatted with us for a little. Da Brat was there and Nick Cannon. After all the press was done, they brought Mariah over to us and she just stayed with us for about 10 min. I showed her my phone and she grabbed and she is like awwww how festive!! And then we take 2 pics and she is like are you sure you like them? Because we can take more if you don't like them... so I told her anything with you and me in it of course I will love lol and she laughed... it was so nice to have her in a relaxed environment because we could actually chat a little and no one was telling us no don't do this don't do that it was just so much fun!Davidia:
