Mary J. Blige Performs for Hurricane Sandy Telethon

Mary J. Blige

Mary J. Blige lent her voice to a good cause. The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul performed her empowering song “The Living Proof” during NBC’s “Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together” telethon last night.

Before beginning, Mary shared a hopeful message in the aftermath of the storm. “My prayers go out to everyone who was affected by the hurricane,” she said. “Things are gonna get better, so please just hang in there, be strong, and have faith. And please everybody watching tonight, give something, anything. Every penny counts.”

Her powerful lyrics couldn’t have been more poignant in this time of need. “So stay strong, hold on ’cause you made it through … You’re the living proof,” sang Mary as images of Sandy’s destruction flashed on screen behind her.

Her star power, along with Christina Aguilera, Jon Bon Jovi, and Bruce Springsteen, helped raise millions for relief efforts. You too can help by donating to the Red Cross.

    Girl BYE!!! Mary is a theif, I pray they didn’t allow Mary to be involved with the money, because her organization or “so-called organization” is under investigation for Fraud! Mary can’t be trusted. This bi**h is still with the projects mentality. Has Been!

    @Antwane, You’re right They didn’t call the Queen Minaj. She’s busy touring and making $12 mill on American Idol. So, she wouldn’t have the time.

    My life 2 the journey continues deserves so much more appreciation than what it got!! People really ain’t listen to real music anymore…I love this song and will always support the soul/hip hop queen. Glad to see her doin her thing.
    @NickiMinajRules2013too, you crack me up comparing Nicki to every damn artist on here lmao. You’re kinda messed up ain’t you. Nicki and Mary ain’t even close to even being part of the same genre man so sit the fuq down!!! You diss people that Nicki probably chills with on the regular, she’s probably so embarrassed to have an ignorant fan like you!

    So, at what point did she sing the Crispy Chicken anthem? That’s been her biggest hit of the last 5 years.
