|Mariah Carey chronology|
Here Is Mariah Carey, also known simply as Mariah Carey or Mariah's Thanksgiving NBC Special, was Mariah Carey's third DVD/video release. It presents Carey performing live at Proctor's Theatre in Schenectady, New York on July 18, 1993. The video was originally released in late 1993, and the DVD was released on September 12, 2006.
First shown as a television special on Thanksgiving 1993 on NBC, the video presents Carey performing a concert to celebrate and promote her Music Box album. She performed four songs from Music Box: "Dreamlover", "Hero", "Without You", and "Anytime You Need a Friend"; this concert was the first public performance of these songs. Carey also performed five older hits: "Vision of Love", "Love Takes Time", "Someday", "Emotions", and "Make It Happen". In addition to the performances, an alternate version of the duet "I'll Be There" by Carey and Trey Lorenz was also shown. This song was also filmed at Proctor's Theatre with members of the Albany Police Athletic League on stage with Mariah.
Much of this material would later be featured in Carey's late 1993 Music Box Tour.
The video release comes with the music video of "Dreamlover". Performances of "Dreamlover" and "Hero" from this concert were later used for audio release as official live versions on commercial/promo singles.
