QUOTE: Mary J. Blige

“As a child I always wanted to be a singer.  The music my mother played in the house moved me – Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Mahalia Jackson.  It was truly spiritual.  It made you understand what God was.  We are all spirits.  We get depressed.  But music makes you want to live.  I know my music has saved my life.”
