Mary J. Blige to Release First Christmas Album
MJB is currently putting the finishing touches on her holiday effort, which is due in October. Helping her bring her soulful magic to the album is none other than 16-time Grammy Award-winning producer David Foster.
Along with her Christmas album, Blige is also starring in a holiday musical film titled 'Black Nativity.'
The flick is about a young orphan teen named Langston who spends Christmas with his estranged grandparents in New York. Unwilling to live by his grandparents rules, Langston embarks on an inspirational journey that tests his faith and helps him discover the true meaning of family.
Filmmaker Kasi Lemmons ('Eve's Bayou') is directing the holiday film, which opens in theaters nationwide Nov. 27.
Ho! Ho! Ho! It looks like it's going to be a very Mary Christmas!
