Mary J. Blige celebrates birthday with Walk of Fame honour

During the emotional ceremony, Blige recalled her childhood in the projects in NY and the big dreams that helped her become the star she is today. She's received 31 Grammy nominations over the course of her 25-year career.

Blige's second album, "My Life", released in 1994, featured the hits "I'm Going Down", "Mary Jane", "I Love You", and the title track, which became a signature song for her. Blige has recorded eight multi-platinum albums and sold more than 50 million copies. Regardless of what was being said about me.

Blige won her first Grammy in 1996 for best rap performance by a duo or group for "I'll Be There For You/You're All I Need To Get By", a collaboration with Method Man. "I wrote you all a letter with "My Life," her incredible CD, "and you all wrote me back with your support". It set me free from all of the negativity and confusion that was happening outside of our home.

In addition, Mary recalled what kept her going through tough times as an adult.

"I am feeling like a proud father", Harrell, who founded Uptown Records, the label that signed Blige in 1989, said. The hip-hop mogul was also on hand to honor her. We've been through a whole lot. We would drive down the highway in NY and just dream. "I say that not because of arrogance", she said, but because of all that she has endured to achieve this feat including her current nasty divorce with her former husband. We want to be big. And we want to come and shake up the world.

The singer's longtime pal Sean "Diddy" Combs led fans in a chorus of Happy Birthday as he saluted the Family Affair star on Hollywood Boulevard.
