Old School Illuminati Symbolism: Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston (1999 video)


This performance of When You Believe by Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston at the 1999 Oscars begins rather conventionally but quickly becomes an all-out Illuminati extravaganza, complete with a checkerboard floor, a pyramid and an “illuminated” occulus doubling as a solar deity at the top. Odd fact: both singers suffered a rather violent breakdown in the following years.

you guys need to listen Mariah's Fly Like A Bird and I Wish You Well

She even mentioned some verses of the Bible

Can u please do an article on Whitney and Mariah ?

Hmm how! Both these women talked and sang about God and Jesus Christ a lot! It’s also in her “If it’s over performance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AI1rb60yvS0 Do you guys think the rules of the industry has changed over time; maybe in the past they would put all they wanted in he music videos & background whilst the artist chose if they wanted to join. But then again Mariah’s brother talks about their Mom doing Satanic rituals on them…

They sung it a big eye GLORY TO JESUS

i will be a witness when God declares his children…the lucifer and his cohorts thrown in abyss…lol..

All the illuminarti is a bunch of picky people! The movie is Egyptian so they are gonna have pyramids!! If you take into account every move you make everyday you will do a illumarti signs. For instance I was talking to a friend and she goes omg you did the illuminarti triangle symbol and I was like really? We all do them all the time! Stop being picky little s***s! Get a life!!

f**k tommy motoala he can eat a dick in die all them illuminati santanism mfs GOD will be to judge then what they gone do i hope they dont think going to mars gone save they ass ! burnin eternal fire

wow I don’t believe this illumanati s**t because god is the strength of good which out weighs evil if you belive me plz follow me on twitter@ chadleigh giant

The process of splitting a personality, while effective for a while seems to come unraveled for many. So the Illuminati have some work to do with their monarch programming. Drugs are a favorite tool but they have their long term negative effects. We see so many "stars" go "Cocoo for Cocoa Puffs." I'd like to know what role Clive Davis played in all of this – master programmer? He was the one that discovered her and so many others. She died right before his party. A living sacrifice? At any rate the party went on with all the other stars. I think this cult might be one of the sins against the Holy Spirit. Perhaps this is what Yeshua referred to "And be not afraid of them that kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul… Read more »
I found this site after hearing about Whitney – so sad. I've been researching NWO, and Illuminati, Freemasonry etc. for about a year now. Wow, Don, Whitney and who is next? – Mariah? I hope not. Mariah, I really don't know if she is really "saved". She mentions God in her song – Make It Happen – "God" is a generic term that can be applied to any deity being worshiped by the worshiper. The occult operates in double meanings, how do we know her 'God' isn't really Satan who the Illuminati worships as Lucifer? Anyone who has studied the Illuminati knows they employ double meanings and 5th column tactics- infiltrate and destroy institutions from within like organized religion, such as Christianity. As a born again Bible believing Christian, I can say with certainty we have no business being in business with worldliness, which is the lust of the eyes,… Read more »

Check out "I Wish You Well".

And now Whitney is dead.

Do you guys see it?

Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012)

There's the 9 and there's the 11…


Illuminati is simply an organ lucifer uses 2 accomplish hes plan 2 gv evry1 hes mark of no return bk 2 God almighty hes creator and d archtect of heaven and earth. I mean d mark of d beast,whch is 666. Evry member of illuminati is an agent 2 achieve dis.

Gotta love Mariah, watch her sannnggg

what did the song side-effects mean or refer to?

I know that it's monarch brain control, but god created butterflies as a thing of beauty, Mariah thinks they are beautiful, listen to I wish you well and fly like a bird, can't take that away and see she went against the illuminati they tried to make her look crazy just like they did micheal. Anyway they don't set up the Grammy stages Mottola and Sony and those who run the Grammys do so she had nothing to do with this set up, and she will protect her children just like she protected herself.

Also, this song was the theme tune to an Egyptian themed movie. It only makes sense to include pyrimids. Beyonce randomly having pyrimids in the background on stage is different. That's not coincedental.

Actually this movie is part of the ongoing Hollywood campaign to Judaize or Zionize Christianity. It the elevation of of old testament stories over the importance of Yeshua – the New Testament. The best movie you can get out of Hollywood about Yeshua is Mel Gibson's version where they beat the crap out of him for two hours. While the Talmudic Jews complained they probably secretly enjoyed the spectacle. It is subtle but not so subtle propaganda – the elevation of the Jewish heritage over Christian. Really they are Edomites and not Israelites at all – but that is another story.

Mariah is not part of the illumanti. She was niave marrying Tommy Mottolla, but she broke free from him aged 26. She then wrote an ANTI-illumanti song (called, 'Can't Take That Away From Me (Mariah's Theme') which Mariah desperately wanted to release as a single; however, Mottola didn't want that to happen so he sabotaged the promotion of it when she got her way. Then, when she finally broke free from Sony in 2001 and released her first album (Glitter) with a different label, the twin towers COINCEDENTALLY got blown up on the exact same date that album was released…

Additionally, Mariah recently said in an interview with Barbra Walters that she will 'never let her spirit be taken again' (in referal to her marriage with Mottola).

This video reminds me of a song/video Mariah Carey released back in 1997 with Bone Thugs and Harmony, entitled "Breakdown" – Interesting title huh? Here is a link to it. You might find some of the symbolism in the video interesting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bC7V9dn1rC8&ob

I'm stunned.

How did we not see this before?

Whitney stayed on the black side and Mariah stayed on the white!!

Seriously, Shocking.

I'll start out by saying THE REAL BIBLICAL ISRAELITES WERE BLACK. Check the curses upon the nation 'for a sign and a wonder' to all in Deuteronomy ch. 28. Not one of those curses do those Zionist imposters fit! Secondly, as ALL children of Israel are in the entertainment industry Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston were pimped-out, destroyed, and discarded by the Satanic powers that be. People choose to believe what is "convenient" and would much rather continue playing 'where's Waldo' and looking for suns & triangles than except the hard to swallow truth. This is why most people still want to believe jews are white but believe every other conspiracy known to man. The longer you deny the entirety of the Satanic delusion the longer you'll stay running in circles. SMH Just read the Bible and understand the actual jews are the descendents of the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade.… Read more »

Very true I couldn't agree more people are so blinded by mans interpretation of things that they don't realize the truth has been right there in front of them the whole time which is the bible heavenly inspired and written by The Most High through his chosen seed The Biblical Hebrews Of The Bible. The world is not ready for the real truth that is why they flock to anything that feels good but soon all will know who we are and what a glorious day that will be.

Why didn't I see this back then. I actually thought coool props!

I wonder what years of this blatant bombardment has done to us all!

This sounds pretty freaky its a justin bieber song backwards..idk how realistic this can be but like i said its freaky(copy+paste if u cant click the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3_lUccownY&fe

whatever I love Mariah and always will! She's AMAZING!

Did anyone else notice Whitney throw up the devil horns when she said the word "fears" @ 2:35? (from the verse, "and it's easy to give in to your fears")

First off I am not religious at all b/c all religions are false and manmade but the scriptures are the truth from The Most High. What gets under my skin is when people who don't understand the scriptures (bible) try to speak against it b/c it has not been interpreted to them correctly. The scriptures are 100% corrrect but mans understanding is flawed when the wrong people are trying to explain it. This is a pretty good site when it comes to making us more aware of our surroundings but what you all have to realize is all this has happened before nothing new under the sun. These are just prophecies being fufilled. Everyone is looking at the physical and not realizing the spiritual aspect of it the illumanati, masons, celebrities, alters, mind control whatever you want to call them are possessed by demonic entites, fallen angels, and satan himself… Read more »

It's a relief to find there are others out there who see what I see. Be ever vigilant, my friend, but always remember, the more who awaken, the stronger the good side becomes. So few are awake that those who make peaceful protests are being beaten down and jailed right in front of them but it is never reported on the news so others have no idea it is happening. I find that nearly all of the old films about sci-fi are and have been happening for millenia…but it has been kept hidden under the veil of blindness. One way or another the change is happening now…the good side wins, though, so don't forget that! 🙂

Well thank you it is good to see someone else that realizes that it is much deeper than the physical and yes I do know who wins or shall I say has already won.

Just a fun fact…after watching this, I decided to look at her Wikipedia page. Did anyone know she launched a record label in 2002 by the name of "MonarC" Kinda disturbing…

Better yet…check out the label's Logo:


"MonarC LAMBS"

Hmm, always liked the movie version better

One thing. People should remember that everything about Egypt is not bad or evil. The Israelites (not white people) were a part of its history. God was there with them. The Israelites (non-White people) did amazing things through the Lord.

Out of egypt came the Lord, and that is when Egypt began to suffer. A new uprising Pharoah attempted to oppress God's people. Moses was chosen to help free His people from the hands and bondage of Pharoah. Woe, to the nations that attempt to oppress God's people of any race.

Um… we all know that the ancient Israelites were NOT. WHITE.

But thanks for that :))

I burst into tears when I saw this. I GREW UP ON THE PRINCE OF EGYPT. oh I didn't even each this,

He's not saying the MOVIE is bad. It's this particular performance that is filled with unnecessary symbolism. The movie is still good, it will be ok

you should go and hear beyonce jay-z's bonnie & clyde.listen to her part.

So sad and scary! I used to love this song when I was around 10 years old. And I even these days I used to think that the media doesn't do that anymore, songs that inspire us, I thought it was a great model for kids, you know..

But look at that!! It feels like we are never safe in this world!!

The stage is completely scary, and when you watch that and don't have a clue of the meanings, you probably believe that's is a great message and all that…

Thank GOD I have information, I'm not blind anymore!

If you have watched the Prince of Egypt movie you will notice that God is portraid as cruel and and unfair for bringing all the plagues on the Egyptians. The "Moses" character sings a song about how bad he feels that God is using him to do this in the song "This is My Home" (I think that's the name of the song). It does show that the Egyptians were also cruel and oppressive but what this movie dues is plant the seed in people's minds that God is no better than those Egyptians that enslaved the Hebrews. Further it puts into question whether or not God has the right to punish people for being disobedient. What they are trying to do is take a Biblical account and twist it to serve their purpose and profit from it. It's not surprising that at the end of Whitney and Mariah's performance… Read more »

i don't agree with your "interpretation" at all. the song is depicting Moses's struggle with allowing the people that he grew up to suffer versus doing the right thing. the pharaoh was stubborn and allowed his people to suffer when he could've complied with Moses and saved them from the plagues. in that entire scene Moses does not express any anger or contempt towards "god" and in the lyrics he actually blames the pharaoh for the plagues. i encourage people to research things before they spread more ignorance around.

You are entitled to your opinion but I stand behind mine.

Nope, how is God portrayed wrong in the film, when He spoke to Moses and sent him back, and used him to tell Pharaoh just as the bible said. It was quite accurate and gives you the impression of the human side of Moses, who actually lived their and had human feelings. The best part was when the red sea parted, the songs were beautiful. Deliver Us was an amazing song and true to the love of God answering his people. God is not harsh in any means depicted in the movie, He is shown true in judgement and delivered His people.

Okay, I usually like the stuff you post on here and think it's very informative; however, this time I feel you a missing a lot.

First, the movie was set in Egypt (The Prince of Egypt), and since the Freemasons took a lot of their symbols from Egypt, it would make since that it would show up when they were singing the song.

So yes, there would be a pyramid. There would be a sun. And there would be checker floors. I've traveled to many ancient ruins, and the ancients loved checker floors.

I think with this one, you're grasping at straws.

Mind You the song is from a Movie called " The Prince OF Egypt "

This is really ironic. The lyrics of the song are really inspirational because the song comes from the prince of Egypt which is A Movie that depicts Moses, and they perform it like this. How Sick ????!!!!!

Didn't know about this stuff in 1999 but boy was that loaded

1. As the curtain rises the sun rises over the pyramid

2. 18 singers were standing in the pyramid. 6+6+6 for the antichrist

3. Sprial Staircase on either side of pyramid represents DNA (See Freemasonry)

4. 8 singers on one side and 7 singers on the other side so 18 + 8+7 = 33 for the beast

So in 1999 they showed the sun rising over the antichrist as if his day is beginning then 33 singers welcome in the beast. Popular music is nothing but pure evil

@ sandiego watcher –

True, true. And back in 1999, who among us would have even known? I think it's by the grace of God only that we understand this mess now. Well, at least we've got some knowledge…

33 singers on pyramid the 33 mason degrees – the servants of lucifer singing about their dark king…yeah, s**t, now i got really what was about this damned cartoon and its song! it was a message codified to all the freemasons that the arrival of lucifer was imminent – their king…2 years later there happened 11 september – the consacration of new millenium to their sick ideas and damned king…

In response to all: "Great darkness and gross darkness the people" – my Father "The kingdomS of this world has become the kingdom of our God and of His and he shall reign forever and ever' – my Father speaking of the reign of my big brother – Jesus the Christ "The earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord even as the waters covers the sea" – My King and Lord All I am saying in essence is that all these things are happening in fulfilment of my Father's words, it is for but a season, the judgement of my King shall come upon the 'elite', and they shall be drunk on their own blood, the sword shall slay their young lions, they shall be plundered. They are drunk on the blood of innocents and burn incense to their dragnet and they contemplate the power of their… Read more »

Ooooh snap, my gurl MiMi sho did dun do the hell outta dat show! And now Whitney was looking on point in that dress guh! Aint no otha kinda b*****s got s**t on dem right der!

Maaaan they was killin it tho! Bad b*****s right here!

mmhmm guh i kno rite! SHooooooowing out frand!

It's incredibly saddening to see so many people with so much talent go to such an evil waste.

other then it being a very suckish performance, it was masonic.

I was transfixed in the music…all of the sudden, it turned freaky.

Christina Aguilera's song "BIRDS OF PREY" has very strange lyrics. The song only appeared as a bonus track in the deluxe edition of her latest album, didn't make it in the regular edition. The lyrics : Suddenly lost inside a fantasy Everything not quite what it seems to be Slipping and falling through the looking glass Catching a glimpse at all that lies behind the masks You disappear with the dawn You only see what you want When you’re out with the birds of prey When you’re out with the birds of prey They watch and they feed They take what they need They bite as you bleed The birds of prey Taking the blue pill only made you cry And all that the red pill did was make you forget why There is no right, there's no wrong You only see what you want When you’re out with the… Read more »

Thanks VC for this reminder! But I'd also loike to say, I think some people are looking too deep…


I hear you. I have researched everything this website displays ten plus years ago. I too would never have listened too anyone preaching to me, less than a year ago. I was always a "new age thinker" based on "freedom of choice" "love and peace", it sounds so much more newer, fresher, modern would you not agree?……. until i could feel the Holy Spirit and when this happens everything and i mean everything starts to make sense….. Have you read the bible? have you spoken to God? No degree, Phd, or any other form of education, employment can give you faith ……

God Bless

I did, and I spoke to him.

but found out after speaking to him that the bible is heavy rewrote by human brains..

they wrote the text for there own purpose in the end..

and loving everyone is maybe a modernistic way of thinking..


if you dont want the illuminati to take control

why does everyone here work with them then?

everyone is annoyed and thinking, OH GOD?! WHEN WILL IT END?

thats kinda negative thoughts you are all spreading there..

and just that, is the thing illuminati wants..


yeah, think 'modern'

love your fellowman

You said we should love each other. Isn't that Jesus' greatest commandment to us-to love thy neighbor as thyself? You may not be religious, but you are very spiritual.

One of the greatest weapons we have in our arsenal to fight evil is LOVE.

You are absolutely right.


Also, the stairs going out and the "pyramid" curtains looks like the compass mason thing

Nothing to fear … this is a positive video 🙂

And 33 = christ consciousness ~

the movie is calles prince of egypt, and they perform the song.. but WHY is there a piramide and sun! the egyptians didnt workship the sun. the didnt have pyramids.. WHYYYY this is illuminati for sure! if you look egypt docus sometimes.. there are a lot of black white floors there in the pyramids and the freemasons are not bad. freemasonary is only up to the 3rd degree than your a master mason.. soms other clubs, like club 33, orders you to be a master mason before coming in.. the freemasons have no word they can say about them and what they do.. so yeah, some people got really evil, like skull and bones.. they are only from there own degrees mastermason up. and yeah, the illuminati is also one of that group. if your really against them, go prostest against them.. because on the buildings where they are, its… Read more »



What you are failing to understand is the Devil ……. and how he tricks, he has tricked you.

God Bless

because im not a christian im tricked? wouw.. I believe in an energie that everyone calls god, but i call it the universe. Im not tricked, I believe in all these things, that off course there is more than just fun tv behind that thing, and commercials and EVERYHINK.. I did fashion design for 1 year and I did PR studies.. so yeah.. I know a lot, I know the tricks.. and.. I know the symbolism and his purpose.. Now Im studying fine arts.. and I make art myself. And that freemasons are not higher than the 3rd degree is just a fact. I went to an open-day in a lodge here nearby, just to do some research.. and i've read a lot. my brother worked on a selling for secondhand books.. and, (this is nice) someone passed away and his grandchildren gave all his books to the shop.. inbetween:… Read more »

Thanx VC for opening our eyes, never would have noticed if not for you. Keep up the good work

The stairs on either side look like horns…
