    Mary j blige is my biggest influence. I listen to her everyday and stalk her twitter everyday lol. Her, d angelo, ad melanie’s music is real and still sincere & gives the word soul another meaning. Winning these tickets would make my dream come true of just being the same room with her but give me time to spend with my family in charollete NC. I know this is longer then 20 words but 10,000 words wouldn’t have been enough.

    (9/15: Charlotte, NC).

    Mary J. Blige and D’Angelo are shining examples of the term ‘icon’ and Melanie Fiona is, undoubtedly, a ‘rising icon.’ In a day and age where it has become common and routine for artists to use autotune and deviate from the soulful, meaningful music which inspired fans to follow them, Mary J. and D’Angelo have stuck with what they do best. The hits have kept coming, each better than the last, IMHO, with each album and I am amazed and proud that both of them have been able to remain relevant in the entertainment industry for so long, resist the cliched fads that others have fallen victim to and continue to produce fresh tunes — but most importantly, tunes that happen to be music of actual SUBSTANCE, that are current, yet rooted in that feeling of old school nostalgia for many listeners. Their songs highlight their progression and evolution as artists.
