9 Times Mary J. Blige Brought Black Girl Magic To The Obama’s Historic White House Run

The Obama family’s love for soul music has been consistent part of their time in White House over the last 8 years. Among the many Hip Hop & R&B artists who made repeated appearances alongside our nation’s beloved First Family is none other than 2017 Essence Festival favorite Mary J. Blige.
Today, the undisputed queen of Hip Hop Soul is celebrating her 45th birthday and with the country still reeling from President Obama’s emotional farewell speech, we can’t think of a better way to honor Mary than with a look back some of her most memorable moments with the Obama family.
