They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and it’s true for Mariah Carey’s family. This TikTok video of Monroe Carey taking on the high note challenge went viral when it was revealed the 8-year-old had a little boost from her famous mother.
The video begins with the younger Carey apparently belting out a song in an impossibly high octave, doing a remarkably accurate impression of her mom. However, when the camera pans out, it becomes clear that it was Mariah who was providing the vocals. Equal parts endearing and funny, Monroe leaves in a huff when Mariah responds: “What, you said do the high notes!”
Mariah Carey, who was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame last month, has long been known for her ability to hit inhumanly high notes. After 25 years, her hit single “All I Want for Christmas” is still a staple of the season. Her children seem to be following in her footsteps as outstanding performers, featuring in her music videos and joining in on her performances.
