The Queen of Hip-Hop & Soul, Mary J. Blige brought down the house at Club Nokia for the "American Express Unstaged" show!
She packed the venue with a star studded crowd which included Jennifer Lopez and her 24-year-old boy toy Casper Smart, Nas, Busta Rhymes, Forest Whitaker, Magic Johnson, Anthony Anderson and more!
The 40-year-old rocked a black jump suit that left her fans in awe! She had the crowd on fire performing all her classic hits from the original My Life album to the highly anticipated My Life II...The Journey Continues (Act 1) that's set to drop on November 21!
GlobalGrind got a chance to go behind the scenes for an exclusive tour with Walter Frye, the Director of Entertainment Partnership at American Express and see what it takes to put on a live digital show!
American Express, in partnership with VEVO and YouTube, spared no cost to put on the best digital live stream show Mary J. fans have ever seen! They enlisted the legendary filmmaker Adam Shankman (HairSpray, A Walk To Remember, and The Wedding Planner) to direct her electric performance! The at-home audience got a chance to control their viewing experience by choosing their own camera. They were able to choose between multiple cameras to capture the excitement of Mary J's live performance from all angles.
Mary J dedicated her entire show to the late Heavy D and took her fans on a journey of her personal triumphs and pain. She also sang her hit song "Be Without You" which her online fans collectively voted for her to sing.
