How tall is Mariah Carey? Mariah Carey is 5 feet, 7 inches tall, according to her official IMDB bio, though some websites list the R&B diva at 5 feet, 9 inches tall. Maybe they’re taking into account those impressive heels she usually rocks? No matter how tall she is, Mariah Carey is a pop-culture giant, a world-conquering singer, songwriter, actress, wife, and mother who’s sold more than 63 million albums around the world and landed more singles atop the Billboard Hot 100 than anyone since the Beatles. Born on March 27, 1970, in Huntington, New York, this Long Island girl transcended her small-town roots and became a global star, and she’s proved one of those rare artists able to arrive on the scene with a big debut — her self-titled 1990 album — and remain relevant.
Mariah Carey’s 5-foot, 7-inch frame means she’s slightly taller than average, though in terms of talent, she’s off the charts. Some of her innate singing ability likely comes from her mother, Patricia, who worked as a sometime opera singer and voice coach. Then, young Mariah was always more drawn to pop, R&B, and hip-hop than she was classical, and over the years, she’s managed to appeal fans of all genres, courting rap fans and housewives alike. Mariah has also stood tall on the big screen, earning raves for her performance in 2009’s “Precious.” (The less said about her 2001 biopic “Glitter” the better.”)
How tall is Mariah Carey compared to other famous singers? If Mariah really does stand 5 feet, 7 inches, she’s the same height as Beyonce, though both singers are shorter than Rihanna, who checks in at 5 feet, 8 inches. All three divas would need pretty tall shoes to look Ciara in the eye, as she stands 5 feet, 10 inches tall. Does Mariah’s above-average height mean her kids will be tall? Carey’s husband, Nick Cannon, is 6 feet, so it stands to reason their twins will grow up to be big and strong. And if nothing else, they’ll be rich.
