THE MARIAH NETWORK
Mariah Carey's Homecoming Special
The one-hour show aired on FOX on December 14, 1999. Mariah taped the performances at the gymnasium of her former junior high school, Harborfields High School, located in Greenlawn, New York.
In attendance to the musical guests, the concert special was attended by students from the school as well as children from her Camp Mariah program, a charity dedicated to inner-city kids.
The special also features interviews with Mariah's former principal, teachers, and old classmates, and in a statement announcing the "Homecoming" show, the singer said that she was inspired to return to her old school because of the outbreak of violence and trouble at schools the previous year, including the shooting at Columbine High School.
"I have such vivid memories of junior high and high school and how hard it is just to exist from day to day," Mariah wrote. "But I feel it's important to relay the message that anything is possible if you find an inner peace which allows you to overcome any obstacle."
