Mariah Carey: Whitney Houston Tribute at BET Awards

Mariah Carey gets emotional on stage at the 2012 BET Awards held at The Shrine Auditorium on Sunday (July 1) in Los Angeles.

The 42-year-old entertainer hit the stage to deliver a tribute speech for the late Whitney Houston.

“The first time I heard Whitney‘s voice, I was mesmerized like the rest of the world,” Mariah said during her speech. “Just an unknown, budding singer myself, I was captivated by the power in her range, the richness of her tone and her unique ability to wrap a lyric in emotion.”

“We’ll always have that voice we all fell in love with. She inspired us all,” Mariah continued.

    Totally meaningless awards for people (half of which can barely speak proper English) spreading their brand of filth around the world.

    @Katherine: umm
    i know your not talking because in one way or another we all are fake
    and its noting really wrong with that(as make-up,getting a tan,getting
    extra hair added to your real hair,getting your nails done,getting some
    lip enhancements,etc,)=being fake and fake last time i checked in its simplest understanding means to be something that one is not aka
    being not real,so be careful because one day you may doing something
    or get something done to you that makes you become fake and oh her
    as in mariah carey being an attention seeker is nothing new,move on.
