For many, Mary J. Blige‘s music has been the gift that keeps giving. It’s fitting then that the diva will be presented with one of the industry’s most prestigious presents – a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

And while it’s been known that MJB was receiving the honor, the exact date had yet to be revealed until now.
Organizers have confirmed that the singer’s star will be unveiled in a ceremony on January 11th.
The day is noteworthy because it’s her 47th birthday.
Speaking on the presentation, which Blige’s longtime friend Diddy will be on hand for, Ana Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies said:
“Mary J. Blige is one of the most popular singers of our generation. Fans will be thrilled to see her star on the Boulevard as her career milestones are celebrated on this very famous sidewalk.”
The ceremony comes just days after this Sunday’s Golden Globes, where Mary is up for Best Supporting Actress for her role in ‘Mudbound.’
Will it be a week of wins for the Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul?! We’re rooting for her!
