Mary J. Blige is bringing a little soul to some of your favorite Christmas songs with her new album A Mary Christmas.
HipHollywood caught up with Blige while she was promoting her role in Black Nativity and found out why she decided to drop a hoilday album.
“It was time,” explained the Grammy Award winner. “So when David Foster asked me it was nothing to say yes.”
For the album Blige puts her stamp on tunes like “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas” and When You Wish Upon a Star” featuring Barbara Streisand and Chris Botti.
On working with Babs Blige told us she was overjoyed.
“When she said yes I was like… I mean I knew her before but it was a blessing that she said yes to me.”
A Mary Christmas is in stores now, and HipHollywood has gotten our hands on the first music video, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” Check it out.
