I was watching a music channel on TV (music is such a wonderful gift to the soul) and saw Mariah with some song from 1995. She looked so young and beautiful! Not that she doesn’t now, but youth is a wonderful thing. I remembered her in the 1992 MTV Unplugged, now on DVD as MTV Unplugged + 3: Mariah Carey

In I’ll Be There, Trey Lorenz provides some wonderful backup vocals! I always wondered why I didn’t see more of the guy.
I’m reading on Wikipedia that adding a cover of I’ll Be There (a Jackson 5 song) was a last-minute decision, and that Mariah and the band rehearsed it only a few times in the days before the show aired. Well, they were a talented lot, because this song is one of the best in the set. But the whole set is marvelous.
