The grand opening of The Fillmore in Silver Spring will feature arguably the most accomplished singer in the past two decades: Mary J. Blige!
With nine Grammy Awards, four American Music Awards, and eight multi-platinum albums under her belt, Mary J. Blige is also the only artist with Grammy Award wins in Pop, Rap, Gospel, and R&B. On Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of 100 greatest singers of all-time, she closes out the list at #100.
Blige has sold over 50 million albums and 15 million singles worldwide. This coming October, she is scheduled to release her 10th studio album, My Life II: The Journey Continues. It will be a sequel to her 1994 debut album, My Life, which ranks in at #279 on Rolling Stone’s 500 greatest albums of all-time. She is showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to producing hits!
Known for her R&B, soul, and hip hop songs, some of her popular songs include “Family Affair,” her performance of “One” with U2, “Someone to Love Me,” and “Be Without You,” among others.
