LOS ANGELES:- Grammy-winning soul singer Mary J. Blige - who has earned critical acclaim and award nominations for her acting debut in last year’s “Mudbound” - celebrated her 47th birthday Thursday by getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “I am so grateful, and I say that with confidence and not arrogance,” she told the crowd gathered for the star unveiling ceremony. “I know my work and I understand what this means.” Blige - the self-proclaimed “queen of hip-hop soul” who is best known for hits such as “No More Drama” and “Reminisce” - is a nine-time Grammy winner with tens of millions of records sold worldwide.
