Wikipedia : This day (January 11, 1971), in The Bronx, New York, is born Mary J Blige an American singer-songwriter and occasional rapper and actress.
Official Site : Born in the Bronx, New York, Blige began moving people with her soulful voice when at 18 she signed with Andre Harrell’s Uptown Records in 1989, becoming the MCA-distributed label’s youngest and first female artist.
@last.fm : By the time her next studio album, Mary, came out in 1999, the fullness and elegance of her new sound seemed more developed, as Blige exuded a classic soul style aided by material from Elton John and Bernie Taupin, Stevie Wonder, and Lauryn Hill.
