Mariah Carey to help Bobbi Kristina launch her singing career

13 February 2014, 16:17

Los Angeles - Mariah Carey wants to help Bobbi Kristina Brown launch a pop career.

The Hero hitmaker and fellow former American Idol judge Randy Jackson were close friends of Whitney Houston - who died in February 2012 - and have now vowed to do all they can to help her daughter achieve her musical ambitions.

A source said: "Mariah and Randy were close friends of Whitney's and were heartbroken after she died suddenly in 2012. They kept in touch.

"Now Randy has decided he wants to make a full court press to help Bobbi Kristina become a star- and Mariah told him she wanted in, too.

"Mariah would love to step in and provide mentoring to BK because she and Randy have been so close and even worked together on last season's American Idol. They have years of music experience between them and will share all their knowledge with Bobbi Kristina.

"Randy wants to move quickly and is presenting a plan for the potential star that gets her on the pop charts in under 12 months."

While 20-year-old Bobbi Kristina - whose father is singer Bobby Brown - is said to be very talented, she is cautious about venturing into the music world.

The source added to RadarOnline.com: "For her part, Bobbi Kristina is being extremely careful about her first steps into the pop singing world.

"She wants to be a singing star just like her mom, but she wants to be really careful about how she does it. Bobbi Kristina understands how important first impressions are when you release music."
