Mariah Carey sent thousands of fans back in time with a free New York City concert on Friday (02Oct09) - performing hits from the 1980s and '90s.
The hitmaker was backed by a gospel choir when she took the stage for a TV concert in Manhattan's Rockefeller Plaza - belting out 1991 hit Make It Happen.
Fans waited for hours behind barricades to catch a glimpse of the star on America's the Today show, and sang along to her rendition of Foreigner's 1984 power ballad I Want To Know What Love Is.
But Carey made sure to show off more than her vocals - she sent the crowd into a frenzy when she strutted out in a figure-hugging minidress during a rendition of her new hit, Obsessed.
Thanking her loyal fans, she said: "I love my fans and I think they know it. Especially the people who have been with me for so long. It's almost like they are my friends and fans, and I appreciate them just as much."
