Mary J. Blige came to Chicago last night to feature her documentary, "The London Sessions" as well as a Q&A session, in which I got a special invite to!
I didn't think I could love or respect Mary J. Blige anymore than I do already. Last night she put me over the top. Her documentary, "The London Sessions" was an impressive video that followed Mary for 10 days of writing and then10 days of recording. She mentioned how many artists today (Sam Smith, Disclosure, and Emeli Sande) are from London and are really taking the music scene by storm. She mentioned how different the vibe was in London.
She also talks about how the studios there are simple and nothing fancy. This is a different environment for Mary as she has recorded in NY and LA for many years with Capitol Records.
Mary is bringing her fans to a whole new culture of music and believe me, her fans will follow!
Check out the pictures above and the clip form the Q&A
