Almost a month after relasing "Almost Home," Mariah Carey debuts the David LaChapelle-directed video for Disney's "Oz the Great and Powerful" theme song.
LaChapelle captures the singer belting the Stargate co-produced song, alone, while donning a beautiful black gown. The photographer-director incorporates footage from the fantasy feature through out the 3 1/2-minute long visual.
"'Almost Home' has a message that works beautifully with the film," Mariah Carey says. "It's a feel-good record; it gives you the feeling of reaching your home and being with people that you love."
Aside from co-writing and co-producing "Almost Home" and being a panelist on 'American Idol,' Mariah Carey is currently in the studio working on her album due in May. The album will include production by Jermaine Dupri, Bryan-Michael Cox, Big Jim Wright, Hit-Boy, The-Dream, Rodney Jerkins and contain a "lot more raw ballads than people might expect," the singer says.
