The 43-year-old half Afro-Venezuelan singer has been added to the list of performers at BET Honors 2014.
Carey joins an all-star list that includes Jennifer Hudson and Janelle Monae.
Premiering February 24 in the U.S. and February 28 on BET’s international network, the telecast will also feature Tamar Braxton, Smokey Robinson and Wayne Brady.
