Mariah Carey has been named as one of the inductees into the 2020 Songwriters Hall of Fame. The songstress celebrated the news on her social media accounts.

“I can’t believe it… The SONGWRITERS HALL OF FAME!!!!” she wrote. “This is truly one of the greatest honors of my career.”

“I’m so proud and humbled to be in the company of such legendary songwriters – both previously inducted as well as the incredible class of 2020! 🙏🙏🙏🦋.”

Songwriters are eligible to become inducted into the Hall of Fame 20 years after their first release. The Hall says that an artist has to also have “a notable catalog of songs,” which definitely isn’t a problem for Carey, considering her discography.

“I am very proud that we are recognizing some of the culturally most important songwriters of all time and that the 2020 slate of inductees represents diversity and unity across genres, ethnicity and gender, writers who have enriched our lives and in their time literally transformed music and helped make it what it is today,” said the Hall’s chairman, Nile Rodgers.

The induction comes just weeks after Carey broke records with her Christmas hit, “All I Want for Christmas Is You.” The single finally reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, 25 years after it’s initial release. The song became the second holiday song to ever reach No. 1.

That historical achievement made Carey the only artist in history to have a number one single in four separate decades (90s, 00s, 10s, and 20s).

To celebrate the song’s 25th anniversary, Carey released an all new version of her “All I Want For Christmas Is You” video, featuring previously unreleased footage. 

Joining Carey in the 2020 class are Eurythmics, Steve Miller, The Isley Brothers, and The Neptunes.

Congratulations to Mariah Carey on her huge accomplishment.
