Hollywood Chamber to honor Mariah Carey with star on Walk of Fame

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that singer Mariah Carey will be honored with the 2,556th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on August 5, 2015 at 11:30 a.m. PDT. The star in the category of Recording will be dedicated in front of the W Hollywood Hotel at 6270 Hollywood Boulevard.

Helping emcee and Hollywood Chamber President/CEO Leron Gubler to unveil the star will be celebrity guest speakers, LA Reid, Lee Daniels, and Brett Ratner.  “Finally, all questions regarding when Mariah Carey will be honored with a star are answered! Fans have repeatedly asked us when their favorite singer would be honored, and now is the time! We are thrilled that we can add one of the world’s biggest talents to our Walk of Fame,” stated Ana Martinez, Producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremonies.

Mariah Carey is the best-selling female artist of all time with more than 200-million albums sold to date and 18 Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 singles (17 self-penned), more than any solo artist in history. Mariah is a singer, songwriter, and producer recognized with multiple Grammy Awards, 21 American Music Awards, Billboard’s “Artist of the Decade” Award, the World Music Award for “World’s Best Selling Female Artist of the Millennium,” and BMI’s “Icon Award” for her outstanding achievements in songwriting, to name a few. With her distinct five-octave vocal range, prolific songwriting, and producing talent, Mariah is truly the template of the modern pop performance.

Mariah’s ongoing impact has transcended the music industry to leave an indelible imprint upon the world at large. She made her entrée into the world of independent film with her landmark performance in “WiseGirls” starring alongside Academy Award® winner Mira Sorvino and Melora Walters. In 2009, Mariah was recognized with the Breakthrough Performance Award at the Palm Spring International Film Festival for her critically acclaimed role in Lee Daniels’ “Precious.” Mariah went on to appear in Daniels’ stellar ensemble piece “The Butler” (2013).

Mariah’s latest album release, “#1 To Infinity,” arrived in stores May 18, 2015 on Epic Records/Columbia Records/Sony Legacy. For the first time ever, one career-spanning chronological collection gathered all 18 of her No. 1 singles. Included as the final track on the collection was Mariah’s breathtaking single, “Infinity” (co-written and produced by Mariah). The album served as the set list for Mariah Carey #1 To Infinity, her sold-out, headlining residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

A Congressional Award recipient, Mariah has generously donated her time and energy to a range of philanthropic causes near to her heart including Save the Music, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, World Hunger Relief, and the Elton John AIDS Foundation, among many others. A tremendous supporter of children’s charities, both domestic and international, Mariah founded Camp Mariah in partnership with the Fresh Air Fund, a retreat for inner city children to explore career development.

Hollywood Chamber to honor Al Schmitt with star on Walk of Fame

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that music pioneer Al Schmitt will be honored with the 2,557th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday, August 13, 2015 at 11:30 a.m. PDT. The star in the category of Recording will be dedicated in front of the historic Capitol Records Building at 1750 N. Vine Street.

Helping emcee and Hollywood Chamber President/CEO Leron Gubler to unveil the star will be Joe Walsh and surprise guests.

Al Schmitt is a renowned recording and mix engineer whose acclaimed music career has spanned more than half a century. During that time, Schmitt has been awarded more accolades than any of his contemporaries including holding the record for most Grammy awards for a recording or mix engineer. To date, Schmitt is the recipient of 23 Grammy Awards, including the Grammy Trustees Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006. In 2014, Schmitt received the Honorary Doctorate from Berklee College of Music.

Schmitt is a New York native, of whom Barbra Streisand once said, “as a fellow Brooklyn-ite, we speak the same language.”   He has worked on more than 150 Gold and Platinum albums, and was inducted into the TEC Awards Hall of Fame in 1997 to in honor of his technical and creative excellence in recording and sound.

In the early days of his career working at RCA, Schmitt engineered albums for such legendary artists as Sam Cooke, Rosemary Clooney and Henry Mancini, featuring the Grammy Award winning title “Moon River,” which also won an Academy Award® for Best Song, and for “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”

In the mid-60s, as demand for his engineering services grew, Schmitt aspired to become an independent producer. In addition to recording all the last records of the legendary Sam Cooke, he also worked with Ann Margret, Bobby Darin, and Eddie Fisher. He also collaborated with artists of the time including Jefferson Airplane, Jackson Browne and Neil Young. Schmitt recent worked on the completion of the of the 2015 release of the newest Neil Young albums. “Storytone” and “On the Beach

Although Schmitt loved producing, he realized, as he quotes, “what I loved best about the business in the first place was capturing the sound,” and returned to engineering. From that point on, some records he would produce, some he would engineer and some he would do both. After returning to engineering again, Schmitt worked on countless Grammy and other award-winning albums at Capitol Studios such as Frank Sinatra’s “Duets” and “Duets II,” George Benson’s “Breezin,” Barbra Streisand’s “Back to Broadway,” Natalie Cole’s “Unforgettable,” Diana Krall’s “The Look of Love,” and Ray Charles’ “Genius Loves Company,” to name a few. He engineered Paul McCartney’s “Kisses on the Bottom,” album, which won the 2012 Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album. Schmitt was also featured in Paul McCartney’s “Live Kisses” DVD which won the 2013 Grammy Award for both Best Music Film and Best Surround Sound Album.

Schmitt mixed the historic “The Beatles: The Night That Changed America” at Capitol Studios for AEG/Ehrlich Ventures, LLC, which was nominated in the “Outstanding Sound Mixing for a Variety Series” category for the 2014 Emmy Awards.

His prominence was memorialized when he was featured sitting at his post behind the recording console at Capitol Studios in the Justin Timberlake “Suit & Tie” video which won the 2013 Grammy Award for Best Music Video. These days, Schmitt spends most of his time working from the famed Capitol Studios, where he has become a familiar and much-loved part of the Capitol Studios family. Schmitt is beloved by generations of engineers and producers, many of whom he has inspired and taught the craft of engineering. He is also revered by the many artists whose magical moments are captured in the studios. Schmitt is on the wish list to speak at notable colleges, recording schools and conferences. His inspiration and energy to expound knowledge to aspiring engineers is limitless.

Schmitt works with the following charities: NARAS Grammy in the Schools-Jazz Program, Grammy Camp, MusicCares, MAP (Musician’s Assistance Program) and more.
