At Home With Mariah: Mimi Auctions Off Private Valentine’s Day Performance

February 11, 2014  |  

You don’t have to listen to her love songs to know Mariah Carey is a true romantic. Her whirlwind courtship with now-hubby Nick Cannon is just one example. Now she wants to give her fans a little piece of romance for Valentine’s Day–for a good cause. The “#Beautiful” singer has auctioned off a private performance, reports EURWeb, and the winner and a guest will be treated to an intimate concert in Mimi’s home. The auction, via, will benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

Carey explained it in full Mimi fashion in a letter on the site: “Hi dahhlings! It’s Mariah here…You all know that this is my favorite time of the year, and so I’ve decided to give back and raise some funds for the incredible St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a cause very close to my heart as a mom.”

The winner will be flown to New York City and taken to Carey’s home for a special performance on Valentine’s Day.The auction brought in $168,985 of a $250,000 goal.

We wonder what Carey will sing to the lucky guest? Our suggestion: “One Sweet Day.”
