Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and actress Mary J. Blige is starting 2018 in a great way as she is honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the recording category yesterday, Thursday 11th January, 2018.
It’s a double honour for the music sensation as she received the star on her 47th birthday!
Expressing her gratitude, the singer cum actress who was nominated in the 2018 Golden Globes in the Best Original Song (Mighty River in Mudbound) and Best Supporting Actress (Mudbound) categories, said:
I am so grateful for this star right now because I’ve earned it probably three times, and I say that with confidence and not arrogance. I know my work and I understand what this means. Dee Rees called me and gave me a job and put my life back in motion with ‘Mudbound’. Dee, I want to thank you for calling me. I don’t think you understand what you did… You really really helped save my life. ‘Mudbound’ opened up doors and gave me strength that I didn’t even know I had.
