ABC's successful TV show "Black-ish" has seen the birth of more than one spin-off with the latest being "Mixed-ish" which tells the story of "Rainbow Johnson's" childhood.

The show, which celebrates being biracial, employed Mariah Carey as the voice of the show's theme song, as reported by BCK Online.

It makes sense that ABC asked Mariah to sing the show's theme song as she is also biracial. While her father was of African American and Afro-Venezuelan descent, her mother was of Irish American descent.

Her twins – Moroccan Scott Cannon, Monroe Cannon – aren't left out of the racial pool as their father, Nick Cannon is African American thus making them multi-racial.

The show's video features the pop star in the studio and some scenes from the show which is set to premiere today, September 24. The video ends with Mariah singing along gleefully with her twins.

The twins appear to be having the time of their lives as they rock colorful outfits and their natural hair.

Some of the song lyrics offer encouragement to people of biracial background:

"Oh, they keep trying, but they can't stop us 'Cause we got a love that keeps rising up. In the mix, life turns around/Round and round it goes/It's a mixed up world, that's for sure. But in the mix, we're gonna get by on our own, side by side/That's all we need to be free/I got you, you got me."
