Mary J. Blige
This Woman Crush Wednesday in honor of Women’s History Month (as my daughter would correct me, Herstory), we chose Mary J. Blige this month for a few reasons…..
1. Mary sings from her heart and soul….it does not get any better than that. She real to the core. When she is in a dark place, Mary uses the music to release and has made the sound that helps heal the soul. Since What’s the 411? to her latest album, Mary J. Blige: The London Sessions, she has remained consistent with giving us music that helps us through our most trying times. Mary is one of the most honest and humble artists of our time!
2. Mary is New York to the fullest!!! I am a big fan of NYC….it is something about that city that I just love; however, New York City although small on the map, is a huge place with its tall buildings and the dubbed accolade ‘the concrete jungle’. Not that there aren’t places around the globe that has hardship but if you can come up and survive the toughness and roughness of New York City, you can make it anywhere. Mary embodies that ‘survival of the fittest’ attitude and style.
3. Mary shows us that anyone woman can wear a scar with class and grace. Despite having a history of drugs, alcohol and abusive relationship, Mary has showed us what resilience looks like.
4. Mary is a timeless artist and entertainer. With 12 albums on her resume, we hope that she continues to give us more of her music. To SocietyKeeper, Mary J. Blige is a living legend.
Check Mary’s latest music video, ‘Doubt’ off of her recent project – Mary J. Blige: The London Sessions – which she has documented her journey through her musical evolution in the creation of this project. We are truly excited to watch how far Mary went to give us more of that soulfulness.
