Mary J. Blige Honored With Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Mary J. Blige Honored With Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

"I remember asking, 'Who is this young girl singing with all this emotion and pain.' I still remember the expression on your face when I told you your voice would sing with rock legends; that your voice would change your life and make you royal". "There's been times in my career that I didn't even want to step out of my house because I was hurt so bad".

Blige was discovered when an amateur recording of Anita Baker's "Caught Up In The Rapture" that Blige made in a mall recording booth made its way to Harrell, then the president and CEO of the hip-hop and rhythm-and-blues label Uptown Records, who promptly signed her to a contract. "I say it because I know that now, and I know my worth, and what this means". She also said that the movie "Mudbound" where she had both acted and produced one of the soundtracks had helped put her life in motion once again. Blige's star is the 2,626th star on the Walk of Fame since its completion in 1961. And we learned how to survive.




Blige came to fame with her multi-platinum 1992 debut album What's the 411? which included the hit Real Love.

Blige has recently been recognized for her acting work, receiving Golden Globe Award, SAG Award, and Critics' Choice Award nominations for her role in "Mudbound". I say that with confidence and not arrogance. She pours everything into a record and into a performance. "I think I'm good on marriage for a while", she said in an interview with the Associated Press.
