Nearly one year after giving birth to twins, Mariah Carey made a big return to the stage last Thursday (Mar 1) at New York City’s Gotham Hall.

“It’s my first performance since having dem babies!” said an excited Carey, who had her twins Moroccan and Monroe with husband Nick Cannon.

Dressed in a form-fitting black dress, the new mom sang hits like “Shake It Off,” “Touch My Body,” “Obsessed,” “We Belong Together” and “Always Be My Baby,” which she dedicated to her two babies.
