Mariah Carey Made An Emotional Speech At BBMAS 2019
49 years-old sexy songwriter and singer Mariah Carey accepted the icon award at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards. Carey has shared her thoughts about icon award and more during the her speech.
Here’s full Mariah’s speech:
“Thank you so much for this gorgeous award, it’s going to look fabulous in my New York apartment, bye. I’m so nervous! Seriously, thank you Billboard for letting me grow up on the charts with you and for this incredible honor. Icon? I really don’t think of myself in that way.
I just wanted to create something so I could feel worthy of existing and if I’ve learned anything, anything at all in this life it’s that truly all things are possible with God. Without getting into all the drama, all the ups and downs of my career, we’ve all seen them, we all make mistakes…there’s been a few memes.
I guess I’ve always felt like an outside, someone who doesn’t quite belong anywhere. And I still feel like that lost interracial child who had a lot of…nerve to believe I could succeed at anything at all in this world.
But I did believe, because I had to. The truth is I’ve dedicated my life to my music. My saving grace. And to my fans, who are unlike any other entity that I’ve ever known. They’ve lifted me out of the depth of hell and brought me back with their devotion and love.”
She also thanked all the people who’ve been with her on this journey and dedicated the award to anybody. Carey continued:
“who doesn’t allow themselves to be broken and keeps getting up and keeps holding on and keeps standing tall, keeps on believing and keeps rising. I celebrate you tonight. And to anyone who’s ever told me that a song I wrote helped save your life, I thank you, because you saved mine.”
