Singer/songwriter, Mary J. Blige, has to be the most laid back and extremely humbled entertainer away from the mic, but while on the mic she is a power house that blows all crowds away. Her ability to execute her reality through the story telling in her music is second to none. We have literally watched Mary grow through her music. MJB’s life is testimony that there is truly sunshine after the rain.

Now Mary J. Blige is growing as an actress, as she is the now 2 time Oscar nominated actress for her role is the Netflix movie ‘Mudbound’.

And to show that she is not a flash in the pan she now wants to show her versatility.

Mary is super excited about her new role on Netflix “Umbrella Academy” a show about a disbanded group of superheroes who reunite after their adoptive father, who trained them to save the world, dies. Mary who plays the character of ‘Cha Cha’ is the total opposite of the singer Mary J. Blige we know. Being Cha Cha required MJB to do training in martial arts for her fight scenes plus we can add G.I. Jane to Mary J Blige’s resume because she also had to learn how to properly fire off almost a whole entire arsenal. Yes, Mary J Blige is playing in an action backed superhero show.

Check out the video below as Mary J Blige talks about new music to come and her new television career that is now.
