LOS ANGELES, United States – Mariah Carey joined the honored names on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Wednesday, a tribute to the versatile singer’s 25 years of stardom.

Carey, famous for her five-octave range, thanked fans who have supported her through a career that has produced such smash pop hits as “Hero,” “We Belong Together” and “Someday.”

“I can’t thank you enough. You’re melting my heart. That’s why I keep my sunglasses,” she said.

Carey, who is around 45 but whose date of birth is a matter of dispute, has been one of the most successful artists of the past two-and-a-half decades, with more than 200 million albums sold worldwide and five Grammy awards.

The unveiling featured unexpected guests: Monroe and Moroccan, Carey’s four-year-old twins from her former marriage to rapper and actor Nick Cannon.
