Pharrell, Jermaine Dupri, & Mariah Carey Welcome Leah LaBelle to NYC

Pharrell and Jermaine Dupri hosted a coming out party to welcome their new artist Leah LaBelle to New York City last night. Mariah Carey and L.A. Reid showed their support for the Seattle singer, who will release her debut album on I Am Other/So So Def/Epic Records.

Guests dined on crispy rice cakes and herb roasted branzino at seafood restaurant Catch, while catching up with the Season 3 “American Idol” contestant.

“An EPIC moment at my dinner tonight,” tweeted Leah, whose debut single “Sexify” was produced by Pharrell. “I can’t even express my joy.”
