About the Artist
When Mary J. Blige first
appeared on the scene in the early 1990s, some heralded her as the new Chaka Khan or next Aretha Franklin, but Blige had little
in common stylistically with either of those artists. Blige's music is laced with a far more guttural urgency, a sense that
her music must be listened to and must be heeded, a feat not achieved by any female voice prior to her. What Blige does share
with those highly regarded figures, though, is her contribution to music. Mary J. Blige helped adorn soul music with new textures
and flavors that inspired an entire generation of musicians, and her legacy continues to encourage new artists today.
since Mary J. Blige's debut album, What's the 411, went multi-platinum back in 1992, she has been at the forefront of R&B
and soul music. In the twenty-plus years since, the singer/songwriter's musical strong suit has attracted an intensely loyal
fan base, responsible for propelling worldwide sales of more than 50 million albums. And for good reason. Mary J. Blige's
music is the kind of music you can enjoy anywhere: in the car, while you're cooking, at a party, even filling out your taxes,
because nothing soothes like the sweet dulcet tones of Mary J. Blige.
She has continued to have success throughout the
years, gaining fans all over the world. She has sold millions of records, has received more than two dozen Grammy nominations
and was named to Rolling Stone magazine's "100 greatest singers of all time." This singer, actress and entrepreneur is one-of-a-kind.

Mary J. Blige had a rough start to life, but music always gave her an outlet to express her feelings and
sorrows. She recorded a cover of Anita Baker's "Caught Up in the Rapture" at a local mall in upstate New York, and it ended
up in the hands of Jeff Redd, a recording artist and runner for Uptown Records. The CEO of the record company met with Blige,
and in 1989, the novice singer became the youngest female artists ever to sign with the label. She began her career singing
at the Apollo Theater and contributing to work by other artists. Then, in 1991, she began working with newbie producer, Sean
Combs, and he crowned her the "Queen of Ghetto Love," which the label turned into the "Queen of Hip-Hop Soul." She established
her niche in the hip-hop industry with her signature sound and her unconventional look. She donned a baseball cap, combat
boots and baggy clothes, which was different from other artists during that time. Then, in 1992, her first album, What's the
411? dropped and helped usher in a new era in R&B music. She became an instant hit, and fans haven't been able to get
enough of her ever since. Don't miss out! Get your tickets from StubHub today!
With a track
record of eight multi-platinum albums, nine Grammy Awards and four American Music Awards, Mary J. Blige could easily rest

that and so much more. Ever the innovator, Blige has once again turned R&B on its head and created an album that sets
a new par for excellence. Fierce and compelling onstage, Mary J. Blige is a force of nature, and the opportunity to see her
