On Thursday, most Americans are taking time off to celebrate Thanksgiving, a tradition that was first started in 1621 by Native American Indians and Pilgrims, and now has become a time to offer thanks and reflect on the things that have brought us joy throughout our year and our entire lives.
Mariah Carey fans have much to be thankful for this year, as 2003 ushered in a multi-platinum selling album, a critically acclaimed world performance tour, one of the biggest radio hits of the year, and a handful of awards including those presented by the World Music Awards, Soul Train Music Awards, and NRJ Radio Music Awards.
These awards come in addition to an award presented by Z100 for Mariah’s philanthropy work in the New York City area and an RIAA commemorative certification award recognizing Mariah’s unprecedented 100 Gold, Platinum and multi-Platinum certifications – a rare and distinguished feat that few artists have accomplished.
Indeed this is one of Mariah’s happiest and brightest moments ever, which should make us thankful the most. As Mariah wraps up an amazing year, we look forward to the future gifts of her talent and remember the things that made us thankful throughout the past.
