Mary J. Blige Receives Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Mary J Blige Walk of Fame Hollywood Walk of Fame Hip Hop

During the emotional ceremony, Blige recalled her childhood in the projects in NY and the big dreams that helped her become the star she is today. The nine-time Grammy-winning singer has been getting lots of award nominations for acting in the film "Mudbound".

Blige became the latest artist to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. "Dee, I want to thank you for calling me", Mary said. Blige has recorded eight multi-platinum albums and sold more than 50 million copies. "I'm so grateful for this star right now, because I've earned it probably three times".

"When I was a little girl growing up in the projects, I just loved to sing, and I wanted to sing because it set me free from all of the negativity and all of the confusion that was happening outside of our home", Blige told the crowd gathered for the ceremony in front of the Eastown apartment complex on Hollywood Boulevard.

At the star ceremony Blige spoke to fans who she credited with saving her from the depression that took hold between that album and her followup. "I wrote you all a letter with "My Life," her incredible CD, "and you all wrote me back with your support". She pours everything into a record and into a performance. Regardless of who hated me or who didn't. This is such an honor for her.

SEAN COMBS: We been through a whole lot. We would drive down the highway in NY and just dream. Also, Andre said that since Mary was introduced as the queen of hip-hop and soul music on Soul Train, she has held that title. We wanna be big something for our people. And we want to come and shake up the world.

COMBS: (Singing) Happy birthday to you.
