ABC announced Monday, Aug. 5 that Carey has co-written and sings the theme music to the new show “mixed-ish.” Carey says in a statement that she loves the show’s pilot episode, which focuses on the 1980s upbringing of Tracee Ellis Ross’ character, Rainbow.


Carey says she has wanted to collaborate with creators of “black-ish” for some time, and providing music for a show focused on a biracial woman like herself is a natural fit.

“mixed-ish” is set to premiere on ABC on Sept. 24. It stars Arica Himmel as young Rainbow, and Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Tika Sumpter as her parents. RGA
