A music legend is ready to tell her story. It was recently announced that Amazon Studios and Entertainment One (eOne) are currently in production on the Untitled Mary J. Blige documentary, directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Vanessa Roth.
Blige will executive produce the documentary under her Blue Butterfly banner as well as Sean Combs among others. The documentary will go into Blige’s history as a musician and life before success, including issues such as poverty, abuse, addiction and heartbreak. It follows her as she heads out on a special concert tour to perform her sophomore album, “My Life”, for the first time ever as it approaches its 25th anniversary.
Mary J. Blige has won nine Grammy Awards, four American Music Awards, 12 Billboard Music Awards and is a two-time Oscar nominee for Best Supporting Actress and Best Original Song. While we don’t have any word on when the documentary will be released, you’ll be sure to find it on Amazon Prime when it does.
