  21. This would be the perfect and most amazing experience for many reasons!
    • The 2nd of May is my 19th birthday, so it would make the perfect gift
    • Mariah Carey is myself and my dad’s favourite artist of all time, and with my dad being a cancer survivor battling with constant strokes, I only want to give him the best before it’s too late. He’s never seized to provide for my needs (and wants) and giving him this experience of a liftime would be the perfect thank you gift.
    • Who wouldn’t wanna see the woman with the 8-octave voice perform live? She’s been my inspiration since I was a diva in diapers, and is the reason why I never give up on my music abilities. (I sing and play 3 instruments)

    🙂 xx

  22. I would loooove to see Mariah! I grew up listening to her and she’s been my Hero ever since. I’ve never been to an international star’s concert let alone a VIP experience. Also it would make my holiday to my friends in Pretoria sooo much sweeter because then I get to take my bestie with me!

  23. I’ve been a Mariah fan since I was 14 years old, I’m 34 now and her music still brings back such pivotal and precious memories.

    Hopefully I could get to meet her in person – now that would be a real fantasy come true!!

  24. WOW!!! This would be thee best gift ever, I’ve never been a VIP guest before. And Mariah Carey has been my idol since I was a teen. I love all her, my favourite is One Sweet Day. I would love to see her live. Please make my dream come true.

  25. If you were not yet born in the early 80’s then plz step back-give us a chance coz we’ve been with Miriah since the beginning of her career &owe know the path she’s taken,every song holds memories… So I need to go and renenace while enjoying the new as well. ?

  26. I love Mariah ♥ have majority of her albums from Daydream to Emancipation of Mimi, she makes me feel like an idol as I always sing at the top of voice to all her songs. I’ve always wondered if she’ll ever to come SA and here she is, I’d like to see her perform and relive my idol moment live with her (^^;).


  28. Why would I like to win 2 VIP experience tickets to Mariah Carey??
    Let’s start off by saying that this is by far the most amazing artist this world has ever experienced. I’m a huge fan but these tickets would be a great honour to me as I’d like to give them to my parents as an amazing 20th Anniversary gift, and they both happen to be the reason I love Mariah as much as I do.
    And might I add on @Becomingyou, you are definitely the craziest person I’ve met to be giving away a once in a lifetime experience as such… you’re something truly amazing for making someone else’s wish come true 🙂

  29. Wow!! going to Mariah Carey would be so unreal. I would love to win these tickets because it would feel like a night away in Fantasy. A time for me to just check out of the rat race and reality and be immersed in a world of honey notes and rainbow melodies. Mariah Carey’s music has been the background to my life in terms of adolescent heartbreak and adult true love. please pick me and make 2016 an unforgettable year. Mariah Carey will Always Be My Baby and We Belong Together. please be my Hero and make my dreams come true.

  30. I would really like to be given the opportunity pleaae,to go for Mariah Careys live concert because I have never been to a live concert before due to the fact my mom was a single parent she couldn’t send me for such events. Mariah is an amazing singer and women I would really love to see her sing live.It with be a total amazing first time experience to watch my favourite star performering live:):)thank you

  31. It’s an overwhelming feeling to see the person who changed many phases of your life with her lyrics. She is one of those artist where you can say, ” I remember that time and remember that song he or she use to play for you!”. Yeah! That feeling I tell you ☺️
    A dream come true, it’s like everytime something happened, Mariah sang that song right next to you!!!

  32. My friend Candice and I have been dreaming of the day that Mariah Carey comes to perform in Johannesburg since we were little girls, about 9 years ( we are 22 years old now) I can’t begin to express what a life changing experience this would be to win the tickets and see Mariah Carey for the first time live!!!

  33. Hi
    Thanks for the opportunity to win these amazing tickets
    Well I would love to win these as she has been my saving grace through many obstacles in my life ! I actually remember when her first album came out and my older sister had her cassette ! I would listen over and over again to it and because we had no MTV and things like that back in the day I had no idea what she looked liked coz the cassette had no cover so for months I would not know what she looked like till I decided to make a 2 hr walk to the closest shopping centre to see an LP cover bcoz we had no car ! And as an 11 yr old boy when I saw her face in the store with her hair blowing on that album cover I’ve always been a huge fan and will always love her and appreciate her ! So let’s have a splash to that ! X it’s her first shows here and would love these tickets please ! X thank u much , lambily

  34. Hi there Kathryn,

    Besides being such a huge Mimi fan, I am willing to travel from Durban to Johannesburg to see the diva in concert.

  41. I grew up listening to mariah! She is my idol. My sister and I sang to all her songs growing up and I’d LOVE to surprise my sister with tickets. Its her birthday tomorrow.

  42. The first song by Mariah that I fell in love with as a child was ‘I’ll be there’ featuring Trey Lorenz. My favourite part is when she says “Trey Lorenz, sing..” I know it’s not her original song but that is the song that made me fall in love with her. I would really love to see her live in concert.

  43. I received Mariah Carey’s CD for my 21st birthday (that is how long I have loved her) and since then I have loved her music


    Please pick me because I know I’m the one who will have the best of times at the concert because “WHEN YOU BELIEVE” nothing is impossible. I will give “MY ALL” to win this competition because You ( + Mariah Carey and Me = “WE BELONG TOGETHER” hey?! 🙂 I’m “OBSESSED” with Mariah I just want to “TOUCH MY BODY” everytime I hear her voice. So please be a “HERO” on that “ONE SWEET DAY” and I will be a “DREAMLOVER” with a “VISION OF LOVE” and I promise “ANYTIME YOU NEED A FRIEND,” I’LL BE THERE.””YOU”RE MINE #BEAUTIFUL and I sooo “THANK GOD I FOUND YOU because you’re the one to make my dream come true 🙂

  45. wow. Over 20 years as a fan and i’m so excited that MC is finally hitting our shores…….

  46. I would love to win these tickets simply because growing up, my mom listened to Mariah Carey all day long and its because of my mom’s love for her that i know the lyrics to all of her songs and am a Mariah Carey superfan. I would love to win these tickets and take my mom to see her live and so that we can make some more epic Mariah Carey memories together.

  51. Mariah Carey is my ultimate idol, I loved her music growing up and still today. My sister and I were obsessed with her and her music. We use to listen to all her tracks and watch her music videos to get away from the issues we had at home. A song in particular was the track from Prince of Egypt, When you believe ft Whitney Huston, it helped us to get through a lot.

    It would be a dream come true to watch her live in concert and an added birthday bonus present 🙂

    Thank you for the consideration and hoping to hear from you.

  55. I have waited 15 years, she helped me through growing up being different, it’s more than a dream I can’t describe it in words

      1. Hi Karen. Yes the winner was Amanda Khabanyane as announced on my social media pages and the Winners page on this site

  56. One word.OBSESSED? lip biting,shortness of breath, incontrollable sobbing,withdrawal symptoms, twitching, u name it I got it to MV!I’m a housewife of three kids,no four kids including my husband, whixh means financially I rely on my husband and really in this day in age can’t ask for MC tickets but I would just literally die to go. We both adore this women since teenagrs when we met in high school and 15 years later we are still jamming to and cuddling to her music and not to mention we could use a well deserved break from the kids. I hope n pray these tickets r still available but if not sure I’m sure you Gave them to very deserving people☺

  57. This would be a dream come true for me and my son Devin whose 11 years. his never been to a concert ever. We been living in Johannesburg for 6 years now and we enter all the competitions but never won anything yet. Keeping our thumbs crossed.
