The First Vision is Mariah Carey's first video release. It is a collection of music videos, live performances, and behind-the-scenes footage detailing the creation of Carey's debut album Mariah Carey. The home video was originally released on VHS in 1991, while the DVD was released in Japan in late 2004.

Music videos of four Mariah Carey singles—"Vision of Love", "Love Takes Time", "Someday", and "I Don't Wanna Cry"—are featured on this collection; snippets of the album's other single, "There's Got to Be a Way", are also included. The collection also includes the debut showcase (the first public showing of a recording artist to the press and the media) of Carey at The Tattoo Club. Carey performed her singles "Vision of Love" and "Love Takes Time", her album track "Vanishing", and a cover of Aretha Franklin's "Don't Play That Song (You Lied)". She also performed "I Don't Wanna Cry" at this showcase, but it is not included in this collection.

Behind-the-scenes footage includes Carey rehearsing for Saturday Night Live, goofing off with friends like Trey Lorenz, and giving candid interviews detailing her life, dreams, and music. She is also seen singing brief snippets of the album track "All in Your Mind" and the Jackson 5's "Who's Lovin' You". Performances of "Don't Play That Song" and "Vanishing" from this concert would later be used for audio release as official live versions on the Australian special edition of the Mariah Carey album.
