A Lamb’s Fantasy Evening in
Mariah Carey’s Moroccan Room
"One of the most amazing nights of our lives! We’re still in a daze and it’s so surreal to tell people the story of everything that happened," grand prize winner Lisa Thomas told us. It sure does sound surreal!
The private concert experience with Mariah Carey started with Lisa and her friends Andrew and Jennifer being escorted inside Mariah’s home and into the famous Moroccan Room (yes - the same one you saw on MTV Cribs!) to meet the glamorous diva.
They took a few photos together, and Mariah then presented the vintage diamond necklace (she’s wearing it in the above photo!) to Lisa - and they captured the moment for us to share with you, too!
Then the cameras went away, and things became even more surreal! Mariah chatted away with Lisa, Andrew and Jennifer, asking them to share their favorite songs with her - she then sang parts of the songs and held out the mic for them to sing along with her. Songs included “Lead the Way,” “Slipping Away,” the intro whistle to “Migrate” and part of her brand new single, “You’re Mine (Eternal).”
Of course, Mariah also had some surprises planned! She had a few tracks prepared to sing for the group - but it became a truly interactive experience, as she would encourage everyone to sing with her and take over lines while she chimed in with incredible ad libs and harmonies.
And of course, they just went for it! Can you imagine what it must be like to sing for Mariah - or rather, WITH her, in this case? Well, Lisa, Andrew and Jennifer are 3 of the lucky few that can say they have. Highlights included the hits “Touch My Body,” “My All,” and even the true Mariah classic “Hero” (!!).
From Lisa: “The night with Mariah was one of the most incredible and surreal moments of our lives, and we’ve been reliving it ever since! Mariah was warm, witty, and above all, her voice sounded absolutely amazing. It was a dream come true to hear Mariah sing songs she’s never sung live like “Lead the Way” and “Slipping Away,” and now our lives can be divided into two sections—before and after we met Mariah Carey!!”
Incredible, right?! Sounds like they had the time of their lives. We wouldn’t have it any other way!
