3 Doors Down

Hailing from the small town of Escatawpa, MS, near Biloxi, 3 Doors Down forged a major-label contract using popular live shows and the reputation of a single song. Their hit, "Kryptonite," generated unprecedented buzz at local radio station WCPR in Biloxi, helping to make them hometown favorites and enabling them to draw relatively large crowds to their local live shows, which consequently, helped them extend their range beyond Mississippi and the deep south to internationally famous clubs like New York's CBGB's.
Originally a trio consisting of vocalist and drummer Brad Arnold, guitarist Matt Roberts and bassist Todd Harrell, the band soon added guitarist Chris Henderson and retained a studio drummer so that Arnold could come forward and sing live. The CBGB's show brought them to the attention of Republic Records, a subsidiary of Universal, which issued the band's major-label debut, The Better Life, in early 2000. Away From the Sun arrived in November 2002 - it debuted at number eight on the Billboard Top 200 and soon went gold. Three Doors Down toured steadily throughout 2003 and 2004 in support of Away From the Sun, and issued the live EP Another 700 Miles in November 2003 as a holdover between studio efforts. The group returned with the LP Seventeen Days in early 2005. It debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, and went platinum in its first week of release. ~ Stacia Proefrock, All Music Guide

Mariah Carey

video on sidebar
Mariah Carey was born on March 27, 1970 near Long Island, NY, to Alfred and Patricia Carey. She has both an older brother and sister, Morgan and Alison respectively. When she was around three years old, her parents divorced due in part to racial prejudice against them (Alfred is Venezualen and African-American, Patricia is Irish). She subsequently was raised by her mother, a voice coach and opera singer, and was forced to move often because of difficult finances. It was also around the time she was three that she began to sing, often singing to her brother's radio or to spite her parents. Her highest octave is two higher than a normal soprano.
Mariah attended Harborfields High School in Greenlawn, NY, where she claims she was not much of a student. During this time, she sang for her brother's band and recorded her first demo in a studio her friend worked for. Because they were borrowing the studio, they were forced to record into the early hours of the morning. As a result Mariah often missed school, bringing her the nickname "Mirage". Just days after graduating from high school, Mariah moved to New York City with a friend, where they shared a mattress on the floor of a dingy apartment.
During her time in the city, Mariah worked a variety of odd jobs to support herself, including hat/coat-checking, hostessing, and sweeping hair salons. Before long, she won a job singing backup for pop star Brenda K. Starr, which eventually became her road to success. At a party with Starr in the late eighties, Mariah met with record execs and attempted to give one her demo. Instead it was snatched up by Tommy Mottola of then CBS Records. He listened to it in the limo and shortly after signed her to his label.
Since then, Mariah has had a whirlwind success, including number one hits, platinum albums, Grammy awards, and anything else you can imagine. In the coming year she will embark on a world tour and release a new album, and will no doubt further her success far into the coming millenium.
