(WGTD FM) --- 13-year-old Racine Native Liamani Segura received kudos from the self-proclaimed “Queen of Christmas” and legendary vocalist Mariah Carey. Segura posted her rendition of “One Sweet Day,” the hit 1996 duet featuring Boyz II Men and Mariah Carey, on the song’s 26th anniversary.  Wanya Morris of Boyz II Men shared Segura's rendition on his instagram page saying in part "Mariah would be proud." Mariah Carey commented “Absolutely Amazing!!!”

“One Sweet Day"  is one of the most popular songs of all time as measured by Billboard. The song reigned at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts for 16 weeks. A record that stood for over 20 years. The record was snapped by “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X in 2019. 

Segura has had a major 2021. In August, she was the opening act for R&B Group Boyz II Men at the Wisconsin State Fair. Segura was also named “2021 Musician of the Year” by the Racine Journal Times. A clip of her vocal training with vocal coach Cheryl Porter garnered over 100 million views on Tik Tok this fall.
