PHOTOS: 25 Reasons We Love Mary J. Blige
"I am grateful to the [HSN] team for giving me the opportunity to combine two of my passions," Mary told ESSENCE.com exclusively. "The performance is a gift to my fans in celebration of 'My Life' and what that album 17 years ago sparked for millions of women. It was a pleasure to perform some of my newest songs and some of my favorites."

Mary's appearance on HSN came just one week after the release of her 10th album "My Life II: The Journey Continues." The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul not only wowed her fans, but also triggered a huge spike in sales of her "My Life" and "My Life Blossom" fragrance sets. By the end of the broadcast, all 26,000 gift sets had been sold on the show.
It looks like even after all these years, MJB is still on top of her game!
Will you put Mary's new album or fragrance sets on your gift list this Christmas?
