Nine Grammys, over 50 million albums sold and over 25 years of music that is equal parts timeless and personal. Mary J. Blige is back with a new single, outlook on life and a tour with Maxwell!
The Tom Joyner Foundation 2017 Fantastic Voyage headliner talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about the impact of her music for women everywhere and why she had to change the lyrics of her hit single, Thick Of It, due to the demise of her relationship with husband/manager Kendu Isaacs.
On the impact of her music:
“I think we come through such a hard time and we’re all standing there at the end of the show…it’s hope. We’re going to always be challenged with so much, but we’re still here. It’s nice to have these songs as therapy. My fans have been that for me. we heal together in these shows.”
