Mariah Carey Height

"If you believe in yourself enough and know what you want, you're gonna make it happen."

~ Mariah Carey

Famous singer and songwriter, Mariah Carey is known for her five-octave vocal range, melismatic singing style, and her signature use of the whistle register, perhaps that is why she is referred to as the "Songbird Supreme" and the "Queen of Christmas".

Mariah Carey's real height is something of a mystery... even to us. She is listed almost everywhere as 5-feet-9 inches tall (her own claim apparently). But we are sure that she is actually shorter than that -- a lot shorter.

To tell you the truth Mariah Carey doesn't look like a tall lady at all -- she looks like she is 5-feet-6 inches tall at best.

Perhaps it is her wide and muscular build that makes her look shorter than she really is.

Whatever it is, after taking a careful look at her and comparing her height to that of a few other people, we think Ms. Carey is closer to the 5'7" number than any other.

Though in high heels she would definitely reach 5'9" and beyond.

The real height of Mariah Carey is

5'7" or 170 cm
