When her debut album, What's the 411, hit Tower Records stores in 1992, critics and fans alike were stunned and impressed

New York. Mary J. Blige was and remains an iconic figure in the hip-hop and R&B community, and she continues to be a source
of innovative music as well as inspiration. Her music consistently pushes the bounds of the genres and redefines what it means
to be a female voice in music. A tour de force every time she steps onstage, Mary J. Blige is not to be missed, so hurry over

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.
It's the deft balance of classic soul with a decidedly ultra modern patina that makes the music of Mary J. Blige so widely
respected. Young and old audiences, demographics often at odds with each other when it comes to musical inclinations, all
enjoy Blige's music, embracing its sound, its message and its contribution to the world of music. It's her is pure, unadulterated
and empowering music that has made Mary J. Blige a living legend, and twenty years after her groundbreaking debut album, she
continues to be a prolific and gifted musician. Head over to StubHub to get your tickets to see this timeless performer live!
