Mariah To Receive "Wish Icon Award"
Posted by Lynn on Tuesday, 31-Oct-2006, 11:26PM EST
The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Los Angeles will host its 7th annual Wish Night Awards Gala at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Friday, November 17, 2006. The evening will begin with a pre-event cocktail reception at 6:30 p.m., followed by a dinner and awards reception at 7:30 p.m. The star-studded event will honor celebrities and companies who have supported the organization's mission to brighten the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions in Los Angeles County by fulfilling their one most heartfelt wish.

The honorees for Wish Night 2006 are: performer, songwriter, and the top-selling female artist in history, Mariah Carey, who will receive the inaugural Wish Icon Award; acclaimed producer, director and actress Penny Marshall, and Emmy Award-winning actor Eric McCormack, who will each receive the Celebrity Wish Granter Award; Paul Rusnak of RUSNAK Auto Group who will receive the Individual Wish Granter Award; and RTKL Associates, Inc. and Turner Construction Company, which will each receive the Corporate Wish Granter Award.

"We are delighted to have the opportunity to recognize such prominent members of our community for their involvement in supporting wish fulfillment for children and their families. It is particularly exciting to honor Mariah Carey with the Wish Icon award for her extraordinary generosity and her many wish granting achievements throughout her career," said Kelli Seely, president and CEO of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Los Angeles. "Together, those we are honoring tonight have brightened the lives of many children and the family members who love them."

In addition to her multi-award winning career as a performer and songwriter, Carey has also been a committed volunteer for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. She has personally granted dozens of wishes for children from across the country. Many children have taken Carey's place at music awards shows, thanks to her generosity. Carey also donates to help grant performing arts/music wishes; she has donated in the six figures to fund more than 20 wishes. The pop legend was also willing to take the stage for the Foundation when it celebrated its 25th anniversary.

Established in 1983, the Greater Los Angeles chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation grants wishes to children throughout Los Angeles County who are battling life-threatening medical conditions. Working out of an office in West Los Angeles, the chapter has granted over 5,800 wishes to children countywide.

Chart Flashback
Posted by Lynn on Tuesday, 31-Oct-2006, 4:35PM EST
Entertainment Weekly's Whitney Pastorek gives Mariah's "Love Takes Time" an A as she reviews Billboard's Top 10 singles for the week ending Oct. 27, 1990. Below is the "Love Takes Time" entry at number 5:
5. "Love Takes Time," Mariah Carey
Oh, hello, it's my most favorite Mariah Carey song of all time! Okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but really - I'm pretty sure she nailed this one. And to everyone out there who's gotten so upset at me time and time again for not giving this woman her props, listen up, 'cause I'm not going to repeat myself: With its combo of soft trills and a bridge powerful enough to hold up most of New Jersey, "Love Takes Time" strikes the perfect balance of all the things that make Ms. Carey one of the greatest vocalists of this or any other century. If she's going to be on every single chart of every single week of the '90s, at least there are songs like this to make it bearable. So can we all just get along now? A
