After performing in the tribute to her mentor Sean “Diddy” Combs Sunday night on the BET Awards, Mary J. Blige is planning a special concert to be streamed in over 165 countries.
On July 27 the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul will broadcast a prerecorded concert for fans all around the world on Apple Music.
“The last year of my career in particular has been an exciting ride,” the nine-time Grammy winner said in a statement. “From continuing to act, to recording and releasing my 15th studio album, growing and expanding different businesses like Sun Goddess and Sister Love Jewelry, to performing at the Super Bowl, launching my Strength of a Woman Festival and Summit and now getting ready to go back on tour, it feels amazing to take this opportunity to celebrate, reflect and have an intimate night with my fans through this platform Apple Music is providing me.”
Mary is inviting her fans to register on the AXS website for a chance to attend the concert, which will be taped July 13 at the historic United Palace in New York City.
On July 27, Apple Music will devote the entire day to MJB, with interviews as well as her greatest hits.
Blige, who is celebrating the 30th anniversary of her 1992 triple Platinum debut album, What’s The 411, released her new video for “Come See About Me" on Thursday. The video features Fabolous, from the deluxe edition of her new studio album, GOOD MORNING GORGEOUS
