The show must go on! Mariah Carey will be singing her heart out tonight in Central Park with the NY Philharmonic on behalf of the victims and survivors of Hurricane Sandy. But don’t blame her if she winces a little bit. It turns out that Mariah hurt herself more severely than initially reported when she was filming a video last week in New York. The video was a remix of “#Beautiful” directed by her husband Nick Cannon.
Not only did she dislocate her shoulder, she fractured two ribs. Sources say there’s nerve damage in her right arm, there’s severe bruising. No doubt her top flight make up artist will cover all that up! But hey, for a mom of two toddlers with a busy career, this is no joke. Her doctors and orthopedic specialists begged her not to perform tonight because of physical limitations.
Nevertheless, Mariah wants to be there for the Hurricane Sandy families, her legions of fans and for Major League Baseball’s All-Star game kick off. She should be at home resting and healing, but knowing Mariah she’ll “give her all” to make tonight meaningful!
