R&B icon Mary J. Blige was honored on Thursday afternoon with a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame in Hollywood, California. The event was even more special to the singer, because it occurred on her 47th birthday!
Blige’s longtime friends and musical collaborators Sean “Diddy” Combs, Andre Harrell, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis and Jimmy Iovine were on hand to celebrate her and her musical accomplishments. She was also greeted by fans who sang “Happy Birthday.”
“I’m so grateful for this star right now because I’ve earned it probably three times,” said Blige. “I say that with confidence and not arrogance. I say it because I know that now, and I know my worth, and what this means.”
