MANILA, Philippines  – Singer Mariah Carey, a popular entertainer since the ’90s, gave Filipino fans a show they wouldn’t soon forget at the Mall of Asia Arena, Tuesday, October 28, as part of her The Elusive Chanteuse Show tour. 

Wearing a beaded minidress, Carey opened the concert with one of her classics “Fantasy,” followed by “Touch My Body,” and “Shake It Off.”

She also performed one of her first hits – “Emotions,” which got the crowd cheering especially when she sang the highest notes.

She also performed “My All,” “Always Be My Baby,” “Honey,” and “Heartbreaker.” 

Carey got sentimental as she belted “Hero,” complete with  fireworks, and a song called “Supernatural,” which she dedicated to her twins Monroe and Moroccan.

She also performed her latest songs such from her new album Me. I am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse released last May.

Mahal kita Manila! ( I love you, Manila!)” Carey told the crowd, who roared with approval. She even repeated it later, saying “ I gotta get the pronunciation right. I gotta do it right. Excitement never ends!” 

“I love, love and appreciate it,” she added.
