Carey tweeted an excerpt from her book: “The fact that I believed I could become a successful artist is one of my greatest strengths.

“Around the same time, my mother entered me in a talent competition in the city, and I sang one of my favourite songs, ‘Out Here on My Own’, by Irene Cara.

“I felt ‘Out Here on My Own’ described my entire life, and I loved singing that way — singing to reveal a piece of my soul. And I won doing it. At that age. I lived for the movie ‘Fame’, and Irene Cara was everything to me.”
