MARY J. BLIGE PREPARES TO TAKE ON NINA SIMONE BIOPIC

July 10, 2011
Mary J. Blige is one of the most accomplished and busiest musical artists today.  Blige performed last month on the BET Awards, and her new single, ‘The Living Proof’, will be featured on the soundtrack of the  movie, The Help.  Blige wrote the song for the film, which is likely to be considered for an Oscar. 
 

Blige is also an actress, and is ready to start filming the musical, Rock of Ages, which also stars Julianne  Hough, Tom Cruise and Alec Baldwin.  Blige will then be starring in the biography of singer and civil right’s activist Nina Simone. Blige told us that she relates to Simone’s courage in standing up for what she believed in and for being a vocal civil rights activist. (Click on the audio player to hear Mary J. Blige)
