R&B royalty Mary J. Blige will add yet more pages to her already-inspirational story, after announcing (during an un-televised segment of her Good Morning America set this week) that she recently received her G.E.D (High School Diploma).
What’s more, the ‘Real Love’ singer revealed that she will also be going on to study at the renown Howard University as part of the class of 2014.
Peep the announcement, which was aptly followed by a performance of ‘No More Drama’, below…
More power to Mary! As the age old adage goes ‘knowledge is power’, and unlike the faux-power that arguably characterises ‘celebrity’, education is a form power that can’t be taken away. Kudos to Mary for being a great role model to those who feel it may be too late. It’s never too late.
