"Mariah Carey’s “Vision of Love,” is the most influential vocal performance of all-time."

 

 

Vision of Love” has revealed itself to be arguably the most influential song of all-time vocally. Over the past 25 years countless singers have referred to “Vision of Love” as the song that made them want to sing.

 

Beyoncé told MTV after hearing “Vision of Love” for the first time, “I knew it, my mind was made up – I had to be a singer.” Hit maker and The Voice judge Christina Aguilera has said, “[W]hen I discovered Mariah Carey and ‘Vision of Love’, that was a breath of fresh air."

 

Grammy winner Kelly Clarkson saw Carey sing “Vision of Love” on Arsenio Hall’s talk show and “became, like, literally obsessed.” Clarkson told Nightline, “I was just flipping out, ‘Who is she?'” Clarkson said she later chose to sing “Vision of Love” for her first choir solo.

 

R&B icon Brandy told B96 that Carey is “the reason why I’m singing."

 

When asked by i-D what song made her want to do music, global icon Rihanna responded “Vision of Love.”

 

Claire Boucher, more famously known as Grimes, wrote the first time she heard Carey it “shattered the fabric of my existence” and she started Grimes.

 

 It’s no wonder Slate’s Jody Rosen has called Carey “the most influential vocal stylist of the past two decades.

The latter reading is what Beyoncé referred to when she told the BBC that, “‘Vision of Love’ was one of the first songs I heard when I was a kid where I heard all of these riffs and I was like, ‘How does she do that?’” Beyoncé said she was fascinated by the amount of notes Mariah squeezed into that one little bar, “And that’s kind of when I started trying it and it’s something that I love to do in my music, but she completely inspired me.”

 

Jordin Sparks has said Mariah influenced the way she sings and said she used to try to copy Mariah’s vocals. She told People magazine that Mariah’s debut is one of the albums that changed her life and that “I try to sing the exact same way.”

 

Soul singer Marsha Ambrosius sang “Vision of Love” at the first talent contest she won.

A legend was born. 

 

And thank you Queen Mariah for birthing Bey, Rih and Kelly. The power that that has. The international implications that that has. I’m eternally grateful!
