Mary J Blige is golden
Recently, Mary J Blige made it to the Netherlands to perform with Maxwell. The pictures and some videos of the show made their way to my social media timelines pretty quickly and were impressive. I’d already seen fresh performances by miss Blige from just before she came out to my part of the world, and it’s fair to say, the queen hasn’t lost her skills over the years. And I think, she simply doesn’t age at all.
I saw her in concert myself, very unexpectedly, at Wembley in London. This was several years ago, when she was at the height of her success. I was in town and friends of friends had tickets they weren’t going to be using anymore. I really didn’t know what to expect from her in concert, but it was amazing and she rocked it vocally.
