Mariah Carey returned to the stage on Saturday night (13.07.13) after dislocating her shoulder and cracking a rib. The 43-year-old singer, who was rushed to hospital after taking a tumble last Sunday (07.07.13) while shooting the music video for her new remix single ‘#Beautiful’, performed with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra at the 2013 MLB All-Star Charity Concert in Central Park, to raise funds for Hurricane Sandy victims, and insisted she would never have missed the opportunity, despite still being in a lot of pain.
She posted a photograph of herself on stage in a custom-made white sparkly dress with a matching sling on her Instagram profile with the caption: “It was truly an honour to perform with world renowned NY Philharmonic. In spite of the pain, I wouldn’t have ever missed this moment. Thanks for helping me get through it and sharing it with me. Love, MC.”
The singer’s husband Nick Cannon, who directed her new video, previously revealed she acted like a “trooper” after her accident. He said: “She’s such a trooper. I was going to rush to the hospital with her, [but she said,] ‘You get back in there and finish that video!’ Then, after they put [her] shoulder back in place, bandaged her all up, she came back to the video early in the morning and finished out everything.”
Nick also revealed that Mariah’s injuries were more serious than initially suspected. He explained: “She was in this nice, beautiful gown, heels on and everything, and was kind of on this platform and reached and slipped and fell on her whole side. It was pretty serious. Not only did she dislocate her shoulder, she actually cracked a rib and . . . she chipped her shoulder bone.” – Femalefirst
