By Creative Media TimesMariah Carey has recorded a new song for ABC’s upcoming “Black-ish” spinoff “Mixed-ish.” The Grammy-winning songbird wrote and recorded the new track as the show’s theme song.
Titled “In The Mix”, the track is set to debut on the show’s first episode of “Mixed-ish” that will premiere on Sept. 24 at 9/8c on ABC.
The show is set to feature Arica Himmel as young Rainbow, with Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Tika Sumpter playing her parents.
Carey has previously expressed interest in working with the creators of Black-ish.
The news was announced Monday (Aug. 5) at the Television Critics’ Association (TCA).
“As a fan of Kenya Barris’ megahit shows, black-ish and grown-ish, I was inspired to connect with Kenya to find a way we could work together,” said Carey. “As a biracial woman in the entertainment industry, there was no way I did not want to be a part of mixed-ish, especially after seeing the pilot, which I loved. I could not be more honored and proud to be writing and performing ‘In the Mix’ for Kenya and the show.”
