Back in the day, when Carey was just a budding singer, the media would often paint the two divas as rivals.

Whether the speculations were real or not, it was considered old news when the pair became very good friends.

The became close when they did a collaboration together. They sang the hit song “When You Believe” as part of the soundtrack for the 1998 film, “The Prince of Egypt.”


Shortly after Houston passed away, Carey opened up about how much she loved the late singer on Good Morning America.

“It was great, and I don't think people could ever really understand our relationship. There was always this supposed rivalry in the beginning, and then we did the duet and became friends. I saw her towards the end. I loved her. We all loved her, and we were all inspired by her...her legend's gonna go on forever,” she said.

Houston passed away in Beverly Hills, California on February 11, 2012, after she had coronary artery disease.
