Mariah Carey has been nominated to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame.

The Billboard queen, who has produced a large number of chart-topping classics singularly penned by her, will be contesting against over 15 other artists - who have received initial nods for a possible inclusion in next year's class of inductees.

Other performing artists, who Carey will be seen competing against, for an inclusion in next year's batch, include - Tracy Chapman, Alice Cooper, the Isley Brothers, N.W.A, John Mellencamp, Jimmy Cliff, Chrissie Hynde, Alan Jackson, Kool & the Gang, Tom Waits and Tom T. Hall, while non-performing songwriter nominees include names like - William “Mickey” Stevenson, Bill Anderson, Jermaine Dupri and Maurice Starr. 

Only five of the nominees mentioned above will be eventually short-listed to be honored with a star in 2018 for their outstanding contributions in the field of songwriting. 

Mariah - who's been cited as one of the most unique vocal talents of the 90's, is also acclaimed for her profound talent in lyric-writing.

With a catalog boasting of songs like - 'Butterfly', 'Hero', 'All I Want For Christmas For You', 'Anytime You Need A Friend', 'One Sweet Day', 'We Belong Together' and several others, Carey is very much deserving of the honor.

Fingers crossed for Ms. Carey.
