Album: MTV UnpluggedReleased: 1992Charted:
Originally, this was a #1 hit for The Jackson 5 in 1970.
Carey recorded this on the March 16, 1992 edition of MTV Unplugged. She decided to add it to her repertoire 2 days before the performance.
Carey recorded this as a duet with R&B singer Trey Lorenz, with Walter Afanasieff (producer of Michael Bolton's hits) on piano.
Columbia Records had no plans to release this as a single, but overwhelming demand prompted its May 28 release, 10 weeks after Carey's initial performance. (thanks, Brad Wind - Miami, FL, for all above)
