the lord is my teacher
If you find yourself humming “One Sweet Day” or “Vision of Love,” you may have Mariah Carey on your mind. As in the pop superstar with the big voice. Though the name, a variation of the Latin Maria and the Hebrew Moriah, means “the lord is my teacher,” it wouldn’t be surprising if a secondary meaning, based on the singer’s persona, went something like this: “I know what I want, and nothing’s going to stop me from getting it.” Fierce, determined, confident—you go, girl.
