Mariah Carey Vocal Range

Vocal Type: Lyric Soprano (but she says she's a contralto)
Vocal Range: 5 octaves 2 notes and a semitone, E2-G#7
Whistle: yes
Vocal Strengths:able to go from a crystal clear, high octave belt to an airy whisper within the space of a word. Has gorgeous low and high notes that are complimented by an uncanny ability to pitch an exact note without the need of vocal runs. When Vocal runs are utilised by Mariah Carey they are incredibly accurate and always sympathetic to the song's key signature, tempo and style, thus giving her the moniker the "Queen of melisma". It's a skill that can be utilised in each of the registers, as well as travelling through them. Technically a brilliant singer. Mariah Carey's low range is dark and heavy.
Vocal Weaknesses: As Mariah Carey has aged the higher belted notes- above a C5- have become coarser and harder to maintain for extended periods of time. The lower notes are also pushed, meaning an unhealthy technique is used to reach them.
