Great news for Mariah Carey fans as the legendary musician is dropping her first-ever NFT this week! The Mariah Carey: Fly With Me NFT is now up for auction exclusively on the new NFT platform, Geojam. Significantly, the NFT comes with some amazing utilities for Mariah Carey superfans, including a ride with the star on her private jet.
What is the Mariah Carey: Fly With Me NFT?
In essence, the Mariah Carey: Fly With Me NFT is a celebration. Specifically, of the star’s induction to the Songwriters Hall of Fame. While Carey’s induction was announced back in 2020, the Songwriters Hall of Fame experience will take place on June 15th and 16th. As such, the NFT auction began on June 3rd and will conclude Thursday, June 9th.
The most notable thing about the Mariah Carey: Fly With Me NFT is of course the incredible perks it carries. Besides the NFT itself – which is a digital airline ticket for “Butterfly Airways” – the NFT auction winner will get a once-in-a-lifetime experience with the music superstar.
The NFT holder will get to ride with Mariah Carey on her private jet from Atlanta to New York City, the location of the Hall of Fame ceremony. In addition, they will also get a two-night hotel stay in New York City. Finally, they’ll receive two tickets to the induction ceremony.
Another key point about the Mariah Carey NFT is that it has a major charitable component. That is to say that some of the auction proceeds will go to two charities close to Carey’s heart. Namely, The Fresh Air Fund and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
“We Belong Together” Singer becomes latest icon to drop an NFT
This drop sees Mariah Carey become the latest major figure in music to drop their own NFT. Although few if any have offered such exclusive access as the Fly With Me NFT is promising.
As it turns out, Carey has been close to the NFT space in the past. Back in March, she was one of three iconic female musicians who featured on special Billboard covers by World of Women artist, Yam Karkai.
Speaking to Rolling Stone about her debut NFT drop, Carey said:
“This particular NFT experience is based around the once-in-a-lifetime moment of being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and sharing my joy with one of my amazing fans while also raising money for two phenomenal charities that are very close to my heart.”
As previously mentioned, the NFT auction will happen on the platform Geojam. According to its website, Geojam is a social engagement platform that focuses on creating meaningful engagement between fans and creators. As a matter of fact, Carey is actually an investor in the platform.
At the time of writing, the current bid for the NFT is 658,000 JAM ( about $5,003.51). Given all of the major perks of the Mariah Carey NFT, don’t be surprised if that figure climbs way up by the time the auction ends.
