Mariah Carey Shares Cover Of ‘Out Here On My Own’ From ‘Fame’

Mariah Carey has shared a cover of the song “Out Here On My Own” from the movie Fame.

The R&B singer recently shared with her fans the impact that Irena Cara has had on her career, especially in the early days of her career; “I lived for the movie Fame, and Irene Cara was everything to me,” read an excerpt from Carey’s forthcoming memoir, titled “The Meaning of Mariah.”

“From the depths of the vault… Stream now!!!” she wrote alongside the link to stream the new song, which will be included in the upcoming Rarities collection.

The excerpt also went on to reveal that Carey first covered the song at a talent competition held in her hometown; “The fact that I believed I could become a successful artist is one of my greatest strengths,” it read.

“Around the same time, my mother entered me in a talent competition in the city, and I sang one of my favorite songs, ‘Out Here on My Own,” by Irene Cara. I felt ‘Out Here on My Own’ described my entire life, and I loved singing that way — singing to reveal a piece of my soul. And I won doing it. At that age.”

OUT HERE ON MY OWN has been one of my favorite songs ever since I was a kid. Listening to it, I always felt like it was written about me. I hope you enjoy my version (which I recorded way back in 2000), available now on THE RARITIES ??
