Mariah Carey Belts Out Her Signature High Notes as She Receives Her First COVID-19 Shot (Video)

American singer and songwriter Mariah Carey took her first COVID-19 shot in grand style by doing what she does best, and she shared a video of the moment with her fans on Instagram. 

Mariah Carey is one of America's most celebrated artists and is known for her five-octave vocal range and melismatic singing style. She brought all those characteristics to bear when she recently received her first COVID-19 vaccination shot. 

The beautiful singer shared a video showing her actions before and after taking the shot. She said she was excited and a bit nervous about taking the vaccine.

While speaking before her shot, Carey highlighted the pandemic's state today and compared it with what it was last year, and told people that everyone was in the situation together. 

Carey took a deep breath, rolled up her sleeve, and took the shot. When the medical professional jabbed her with the needle, the singer let out her iconic high notes. She captioned the video: 

"Vaccine side effect: G6."

After the injection, Carey did not bleed, causing her to joke that she had proven her point about being a vampire. She encouraged her fans to take the vaccine when they can, before emphasizing once more that everyone is together in the situation. 

Carey is one of the celebrities beckoning on their fans to get the COVID-19 vaccines. She joined Dolly Parton, who also brought her singing talents to bear when receiving her shots as she sang a vaccine-inspired rendition of her famous song, "Jolene."

Tanaka shared throwback selfies of himself and Carey and wrote in the caption that the day was his favorite.

Carey did not let her fans know which of the vaccines she was getting between Moderna or Pfizer. However, she clearly said the shot was the first part, meaning she would go for another short in three or four weeks. 

Some of her fans who commented on the video expressed delight in how the singer kept the mood light before her shot and joked with the doctors. 

Carey celebrated her 51st birthday on March 27 and was at the receiving end of several sweet messages and tributes, including one from her boyfriend, Bryan Tanaka. 

Tanaka shared throwback selfies of himself and Carey and wrote in the caption that the day was his favorite before wishing her a happy anniversary. 

Carey's friend, Millie Bobby Brown, who she met because of her children's love for the television drama series "Stranger Things," also wished her a happy anniversary, thanking her for always being there for him. 

Singer Jennifer Hudson also celebrated Carey's birthday and beckoned on her fans to join her in wishing the latter a happy birthday. Carey shares two children, nine-year-old twins, Moroccan Scott Cannon and Monroe Cannon, with her ex-husband, Nick Cannon.
