Mariah Carey - Hero sheet music

We thought of ending the week talking about one of the greatest artists of all times, and one of her greatest songs, also.

"Hero" is a song written and composed by the American singer Mariah Carey and Walter Afanasieff, released in October 1993.

The story of the free Hero piano sheets is that the song was initially intended for Gloria Estefan to sing because while writing the song, Mariah did not connect to its style or sound.

Nevertheless, after being convinced to keep it, she made some changes to the song and there she was, fitting exactly her personality with the lyrics.

The message of the free Hero piano sheet music is the most inspirational, looking into moments when people may feel down or discouraged at times and in that moment, they have to look inside themselves and discover their own strength- "Hero", that will help them get out of the hard times and "find the way".

Looking into the song’s composition, we can appreciate several musical instruments such as piano, guitar or organ.

The song comes in a length of 4:17 minutes and was written in common time with a moderate tempo of 62 beats per minute.

Hero is composed in the key of E major and the song’s chorus has a basic chord progression, being said about it that is one of Mariah’s most personal and inspirational ballads.

It ranked important numbers in the charts, like eighth chart-topper on the Billboard Hot 100 and top 5 in Canada, France, Ireland, New Zealand and top ten in Australia and United Kingdom.

The song was and still is one of Mariah’s most-performed songs, due to fan requests, because everyone connected to its personal meaning and lyrics.

Hero has been re-recorded a few times over Mariah’s career and filmed other videos asides from the original, filmed by Larry Jordan in July 1993.

During all these changes, Hero has won two ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards, one Pop Music and one BMI Pop Award for the Songwriter Award.
