It was given to her by her mother. Monroe, Mariah Carey’s 11-year-old daughter, sang a duet with her mother at her Friday, December 9, concert in Toronto, where she perfectly synced with her mother.
“Thank you so much to all “Merry Christmas to All,” Carey, 52, said on Saturday, December 10, via Instagram.
The first photo showed her kissing Monroe, whose father is Nick Cannon, while dressed in similar white ballgowns and sparkling tiaras. The duet was performed as part of the “Fantasy” singer’s Merry Christmas to All concert at Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena.
According to social media videos, Carey and her daughter sang the hymn “Away in a Manger,” and admirers could be heard gushing over how talented the young vocalist is already.
Monroe and his twin brother Moroccan used to perform “Always Be My Baby” with their mother during their Las Vegas residency while they were in elementary school, but this performance showcases Monroe’s vocal ability more clearly.
Carey has assured supporters that she has handed down her musical abilities to her children.
“Honestly, their tone when they sing is so wonderful, and I’m very glad that they received that from me,” she said in an interview with E! News on Tuesday, December 6.

Her children just performed in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, dancing on platforms behind the “All I Want for Christmas” singer. Carey stated that it was their wish for her to dance during her performance.
“They show up, attend rehearsals, and get really into it when they want to be engaged and feel like it will be something fun,” she stated.
“It’s a thrill to see them when they’re completely engaged, relating to their other pals — many of them are aspiring singers or dancers who weren’t born into the entertainment business.”
Carey believes that demonstrating to Monroe and Moroccan how hard she works will have a significant impact on their work ethic.
“I think it’s vital that they learn these skills because I didn’t have that advantage growing up, and they need to understand how important it is to strive your hardest and do your best,” she said. “Watching children shine is one of my greatest honors.”
She’s trying to strike a balance between imparting essential life lessons and indulging kids at Christmas. The Grammy winner recently stated that she enjoys the holiday season today because it was never a nice time of year for her growing up.
“What happens when you grow up with a messed-up childhood and then have this metamorphosis where you can make your life what you want it to be?” That brings me joy,” Carey said in a profile published last month in W magazine.
“That’s why I want my children to have everything. I want children to learn that they can be anything they want to be.”
