Mariah Carey covers David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’ during uplifting medley

Mariah Carey has done something heroic.

Or, rather, she’s done something for heroes. During the Robin Hood foundation and iHeartRadio’s “Heroes of New York” event Tuesday night, she performed a special medley dedicated to the “thousands of heroes in New York who did their part to help put our great city back on the road to full recovery,” she said in the video that accompanied the tunes.

The performance featured a combination of Carey’s 1993 hit “Hero,” David Bowie’s 1977 classic “Heroes” and the traditional hymn “Joy to the World.” Carey stood in front of a microphone, a gray wall behind her decorated with holiday lights, accompanied by a piano (and, for “Joy,” a virtual choir) and gave a powerful, moving performance that’ll easily have you in tears.
