Mariah Carey will receive an Award of Achievement during Monday’s American Music Awards.
In its 27 years, the American Music Awards has only bestowed this honor upon two other artists, Michael Jackson and Prince.
Carey is being feted for her streak of at least one No. 1 single in each year of the past decade, as well her unmatched feat of having three singles enter Billboard charts in the No. 1 slot.
Also, during the ABC telecast, Gloria Estefan will be honored with the Award of Merit in recognition of her musical contributions.
