Island Def Jam recording artist/songwriter Mariah Carey has decided to kick-off the release of her upcoming new CD, The Emancipation Of Mimi, with an historic return to live performance in Times Square in Manhattan.  

On Tuesday, April 12th, the album's in-store release date, ABC's Good Morning America will inaugurate its live outdoor concert season when Mariah takes the stage on the street outside the morning show's studio - right in the heart of Times Square. GMA will close down 44th Street between 6th Avenue and Broadway, and only Mariah's fans will be able to access the performance area.

With Times Square as the stage's backdrop, Mariah will perform five songs for GMA.  Three songs will air live during the morning broadcast between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. (EST).  The two additional songs will air later in the week, including Saturday, April 16 on the weekend edition of Good Morning America.  This once-in-a-lifetime event, which is being hailed as "The Return Of The VOICE," is expected to draw thousands of spectators.  Among the songs Mariah will perform: "We Belong Together," the new single from the CD, and "It's Like That," the album's first single.  Both tracks were written by Mariah and co-produced by her with Jermaine Dupri.  

The Emancipation Of Mimi, Mariah's 10th studio album,  which was executive-produced by Carey and Island Def Jam Music Group Chairman Antonio "L.A." Reid,  is the long-awaited follow-up to 2002's platinum Charmbracelet. her IDJ debut, which hit #2 R&B and #3 Pop.
