She got it from her mom. Mariah Carey‘s 11-year-old daughter Monroe joined her in a duet at the concert on Friday, December 9 in Toronto, where she harmonized perfectly with her mother.
“Thank you to all the Canadian fans and lambs who celebrated with me at my show last night!!!! Merry Christmas everyone!! ❤️🎄🎄🕊❤️,” Carey, 52, shared via Instagram on Saturday, December 10.
The first photo showed her giving to Monroe, whose father is Nick cannon, a sweet kiss while wearing matching white prom dresses and sparkling tiaras. The duet was part of the “Fantasy” singer Merry Christmas to everyone Show at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.
Monroe and her twin brother, Maroccan, performed “Always Be My Baby” with their mother while they were in Las Vegas when they were just getting into elementary school, but this performance more clearly demonstrates Monroe’s vocal ability. Carey recently reassured fans that she has passed on her musical talent.
“Honestly, their tone when they sing is so beautiful and I’m so thankful they inherited that from me,” she said E! news in an interview on Tuesday December 6th.
Her little ones recently took part in her Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, dancing on platforms behind the “All I Want for Christmas” singer. Carey said it was her request to dance during her performance.
“If they want to be there and they feel like it’s going to be fun, they come and see the rehearsals and really get into it,” she explained. “It’s such a joy to watch them fully engage and connect with their other friends — many of whom are aspiring singers or dancers who weren’t born into the entertainment world.”
Carey hopes showing Monroe and Moroccan how hard she works will have a big impact on her work ethic.
“I think it’s important that they learn those lessons because I grew up without that privilege and they need to understand that it’s so important to try and do your best,” she said. “It’s one of my greatest honors to see her shine.”
She balances teaching important life lessons and spoiling them at Christmas. The Grammy winner recently explained that she loves the holiday season now because it was never a very happy time of year growing up.
“When you grow up with a messed up life and then you’re able to have that transformation where you can make your life the way you want it to be? That’s joy for me,” said Carey W Magazine in a profile published last month. “That’s why I want my kids to have everything they can have. I want them to understand that they can be anything they want.”
