Mary J. Blige can’t be stopped in 2022!
Atlanta has awarded the Queen of Hip Hop Soul her very own “Strength of a Woman Day” following her Super Bowl LVI performance and the release of her 14th album, “Good Morning Gorgeous.”
The tagline is adapted from Mary’s previous album and signifies the official launch of the “Strength of a Woman Festival & Summit” this Mother’s Day weekend, which is sponsored by Live Nation and Pepsi.
ATL City Councilwoman Keisha Sean Waites presented MJB with an award on Thursday night, with 2 Chainz, Kandi Burruss, celebrity stylist Misa Hylton, and music executive Kenny Burns in attendance.
This weekend, Mary will perform alongside Chaka Khan, City Girls, Ella Mai, and a number of other notable women of color. Inspiring and instructive musical and technological seminars will also be offered.
Next month, she will receive the Icon Award at the Billboard Music Awards, which will be hosted by her longtime friend and mentor Diddy.
