Mariah Carey, mom team up for holiday duet

Tuesday 30 November 2010

Mom-to-be Mariah Carey partners with her mother, opera singer Patricia Hickey Carey, on a song on her new album "Merry Christmas II You". PopCrunch said the duo teams up on the holiday classic "O Come All Ye Faithful". The album is now in stores.
Carey, 41, said she had discussed doing a duet with her mom and wanted to make sure it happened on the Christmas album. "She's the one who really got me into being so festive at Christmas," Carey said. Yahoo! Music said Patricia Carey got her daughter into singing. When Mariah was 3 she heard her mom rehearsing Verdi's "Rigoletto" and sang it to herself. She sang it on pitch - in Italian.
The Internet Movie Database said Patricia Hickey Carey is a former mezzo-soprano with the New York City Opera and a freelance vocal coach. She also coached Mariah. Yahoo! Music said the Carey women's voices blend well - when Mariah isn't out-sung by mom. "What's most notable about this video is that Patricia, a former opera singer and vocal coach, is the real star of the show here," Yahoo! music blogger Lyndsey Parker said. Mariah Carey will also host a Christmas special, set to air December 13 on ABC.
They are not the only mother-daughter duos to find fame. Netscape's Celebrity blog shares others, such as actress Kate Hudson and her mother, Goldie Hawn. The "Laugh-In" icon and movie star wasn't always supportive about her daughter's acting ambitions, once not telling her that she got a role on a television show that was to be produced by Howie Mandel.
Gwyneth Paltrow also followed the lead of her mom, Tony award-winning actress Blythe Danner. Jamie Lee Curtis worked with her mom, Janet Leigh, in the movie "Halloween H2O". Mother-daughter singing teams include country music superstars Naomi and Wynonna.
