Queen of Hip Hop Soul Mary J. Blige is certainly making her rounds this summer in preparation for her new fall release ‘My Life II: The Journey Continues’. Evidence of that is the surfacing of the new track ‘The Living Proof’. A piano laced ballad, featured on The Help soundtrack (due in stores July 26), sees Blige display a softer, toned down vocal performance – a rarity.
Give the song a listen and see the ‘Real Love’ diva speak on her involvement in the soundtrack after the jump:

If range is an everlasting testament to the concept of ‘diva’, then Blige has no shortage of it. While known for her fiery vocal performances, the singer was able to emote yet not ‘overdo it’ in a way many have come to love and hate from her.
