Only Mariah Carey could make social distancing glamorous.

Donning a sleek blue robe, the songstress celebrated the 15th anniversary of her iconic 10th album, The Emancipation of Mimifrom her home on Sunday.

She asked fans on Twitter to vote for their favorite single off the 2005 collection and posted clips of her belting some of its most popular tracks.

In response to Pose co-creator Steven Canals choosing "We Belong Together" as his favorite, Carey elevated the track by giving it her signature high notes.

"Just for laughs," Carey captioned the video.

And given that it's Easter, Carey, of course, sang a snippet from "Fly Like a Bird."

"Mimi's closing track, 'Fly Like a Bird,' couldn't be more appropriate for this Easter Sunday. Happy Easter, everyone!" she wrote, also adding in some of the song's lyrics: "Fly like a bird, take to the sky / I need you now Lord, carry me high / Don't let the world break me tonight / I need the strength of you by my side."

The Emancipation of Mimi was the best-selling album of 2005 and garnered Carey 10 Grammy nominations. "We Belong Together" was particularly acclaimed, with Billboard dubbing it the Song of the Decade. Today, the album remains one of Carey's most beloved works.
