Music artists are no newbies in the NFT world. They have participated both as collectors and creators on several NFT projects. And their participation is not stopping anytime soon.
Mariah Carey just launched her first NFT, The Mariah Carey: Fly With Me NFT. The winner of it will enjoy a full-on experience – including the chance to meet and fly with Mariah on her private jet to New York, and share a seat at her table at a ceremony in her honor.
What does the NFT look like? Imagine a boarding pass in Carey’s signature “pink yet lavender” colorway, accented with glitter. This is the holder’s key to “Butterfly Airways” and a custom audio recording.
Carey’s trip to New York will be to attend her induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Her induction is no surprise considering she is responsible for writing 18 of her record-breaking 19 number one hits. This makes her the solo artist with the most chart-toppers of all time.
“NFTs have the power to go beyond the art and store exclusive access, and this experience is showing just that,” Geojam Co-founder and CEO Sarah Figueroa said. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to amplify this monumental celebration with Mariah, as she gets inducted to the Songwriters Hall of Fame and give the fan the opportunity of a lifetime for charity.”
Figueroa said the NFT will also include a charitable portion. Some of the NFT sales’ proceeds will benefit The Fresh Air Fund, which Carey has supported for a while.
