One injured shoulder don’t stop no show, just ask Mariah Carey. Over the weekend, 43-year-old diva performed in a blinged-out fashionable sling on Central Park’s Great Lawn for the 2013 MLB All-Star Charity Concert. It was for the benefit of Superstorm Sandy victims. [Earlier in the week, she injured herself while shooting for a video with rapper Young Jeezy. She was taken to the hospital, where doctors reset her shoulder.] Before going on stage for her performance, she shared on twitter:

Thanks all for the well wishes. Still in a lot of pain – cracked rib, fractured shoulder, bruises everywhere, but the show must go on. In a sling, but will do my best to make it look good w/ the ensemble Sat w/ the NY philharmonic, an amazing honor for such a great cause.

During her set, she told the crowd that she

was in a tiny bit of pain, but I’m OK.

She jokingly added:

I’m not in the best of health. I’m filming this for my own self for incredible laughs.

Randy Jackson played guitar when Mariah sang “#Beautiful” and a choir joined the singer when she closed her set with “Hero.” Major League Baseball made a $1 million donation for Sandy relief efforts. The wife and daughter of MLB legend Jackie Robinson, Rachel and Sharon Robinson, were also in attendance.
