Mariah may have a reputation as a diva when it comes to her performances, but it seems she puts that aside when it comes to charity. Ms Mariah has done so much for sick and underrepresented children that she was given the Make-A-Wish Foundation's Wish Icon Award for all of her hard work. Here's more:
Carey picked up the award at the seventh annual Make-A-Wish Foundation ceremony held at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Hollywood on Friday (17NOV06). A charity spokesman said, "In addition to her award-winning career as a performer and songwriter, Carey has also been a committed volunteer for the Make-A-Wish foundation. She has personally granted dozens of wishes for children across the country. Many children have taken Carey's place at music awards shows, thanks to her generosity. Carey also donates to help grant performing arts/music wishes and she has donated in six figures to fund more than 20 wishes. "The pop legend was also willing to take the stage for the foundation's 25th anniversary."
Now if only she would dress her age. We get it. She's working hard at looking good and it shows, but we just don't need to see so much. However, it's nice to hear about this other side of Mariah. For more pics of Mariah with nothing diva-ish about her just
