Adding on to her list of prestigious honors, The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, Mary J. Blige will be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for her deeds in the recording industry.
The ceremony is set to take place on Jan. 11 on Hollywood Blvd, with Diddy and Hollywood Chamber president and CEO Leron Gubler who will unveil the noble star.
“Mary J. Blige is one of the most popular singers of our generation. Fans will be thrilled to see her star on the Boulevard as her career milestones are celebrated on this very famous sidewalk,” says Ana Martinez who is the producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies.
Diddy’s presence at the ceremony is sensible, being he was the executive producer of Blige’s 1992 debut album What’s The 411, which spawned hits “You Remind Me” and the timeless “Real Love.” Queen Mary owns one of the most successful R&B careers as she has gone on to win 9 Grammys and has sold over 50 million albums and 25 singles, worldwide.
Some of her most notable melodies to date are “Family Affair,” “No More Drama,” “Be Without You,” “Not Gon’ Cry,” “Love Is All We Need,” and “Seven Days,” which confirm the validity of her honors.
Mary J. Blige will be attending the 75th annual Golden Globes Awards this Sunday (Jan. 7) as she has earned a nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture for her role as Florence Jackson in the movie Mudbound.
