The Birth of a Nation: Live Nation in Silver Spring!
7 pm — Thursday, September 15, 2011
The grand opening of The Fillmore in Silver Spring will feature arguably the most accomplished singer in the past two decades: Mary J. Blige!
With nine Grammy Awards, four American Music Awards, and eight multi-platinum albums under her belt, Mary J. Blige is also the only artist with Grammy Award wins in Pop, Rap, Gospel, and R&B. On Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of 100 greatest singers of all-time, she closes out the list at #100.
With 23,000 square feet of floor space and a 2,000 person capacity, The Fillmore is gearing up to be one of the area’s premier concert venues!
Blige has sold over 50 million albums and 15 million singles worldwide. This coming October, she is scheduled to release her 10th studio album, My Life II: The Journey Continues. It will be a sequel to her 1994 debut album, My Life, which ranks in at #279 on Rolling Stone’s 500 greatest albums of all-time. She is showing no signs of slowing down when it comes to producing hits!
Known for her R&B, soul, and hip hop songs, some of her popular songs include “Family Affair,” her performance of “One” with U2, “Someone to Love Me,” and “Be Without You,” among others.
