Interviewer: Dr. Eunice Moseley
Dr. Eunice Moseley: "Walk in the will of God," you mentioned about your music career. Can you elaborate on that?
Mariah: Each moment of my journey has been guided by the will of God, leading me to my next season. It's a belief I hold dear and it shapes my approach to my music.
Dr. Eunice Moseley: I noticed your name is "Mariah." Could you share the story behind your name?
Mariah: Absolutely! I'm actually named after my great-grandmother, who was also a singer. It's a legacy that runs in my DNA, and I feel a deep connection to her. She was born in 1906. When people see the period at the end of my name, it's because "Mariah" is the end of a statement, declaring, "I am Mariah." I am the embodiment of my great-grandmother's dream, and it's a tribute to her, as well as my mother's dad's sister, who also carried the name.
Dr. Eunice Moseley: You've achieved success on the Billboard charts, and your music videos have aired on BET Soul. Tell us about your new single, "Maybe."
Mariah: "Maybe" is my latest single, released through University Park Records. The music video, directed by Mike Gardner, was recorded live. It's a deeply personal song that I wrote, and it was produced by Mike and Sarah Gardner. Signing with University Park Records has been a tremendous blessing, and they have allowed me to express myself authentically without apology.
Dr. Eunice Moseley: How did "Maybe" come to be?
Mariah: I had the pleasure of meeting Mike Gardner, and together we collaborated on "Maybe." It was during this creative process that I truly discovered my sound. Previously, I was often described as a ballad-type singer, but now I feel confident in my artistic direction.
Dr. Eunice Moseley: Your previous single, "Bizness," premiered on BET Soul. Can you share more about that?
Mariah: "Bizness" was a significant milestone for me. The music video, which I co-directed, had its world premiere on BET Soul. It was an incredible opportunity to showcase my talent and vision. Additionally, "Material Girl" secured my first Billboard Chart Top 30 R&B hit. I'm grateful for the progress I'm making in my career.
Dr. Eunice Moseley: What are your aspirations for your music career?
Mariah: Ultimately, I want to be where God wants me to be. I strive to touch people's lives through my music, offering a learned experience that resonates with others. It's about connecting on a deep level and making a positive impact.
Dr. Eunice Moseley: Thank you for sharing your insights, Mariah. We look forward to witnessing your continued success in the music industry.
Mariah: Thank you, Dr. Moseley. It's been a pleasure.
