Mary J. Blige was born on January 11, 1971, in the Bronx, New York, to Cora and Thomas Blige. She grew up with her elder sister.
However, all was not well in the family, as her parents spent most of their time fighting on petty issues and divorced when Mary was just 4 years of age.
Her mother took both the sisters along with her to Georgia. However, the lifestyle there did not suit them well, and she returned to New York and settled in a shady area, infested with rapists, murderers, and thieves.
Mary spent most of her early days in constant fear for her life, amidst a “not so ideal” place for little girls.
Soon, she grew extremely fond of hip-hop music, owing to the collection owned by her mother. Mary would practice singing every now and then.
Her sister and mother supported her to take her passion forward, which made her win a local singing competition when she was 8 years old.
Her occasional visits to her father also helped her in developing a keen taste in music, which continued with her performances at church choirs and family gatherings. As music consumed most of her time, she decided to quit high school while still in junior high.
Following this, she concentrated only on her music projects.
Soon, she got acquainted with someone at ‘Uptown Records,’ a label that was known to cater to budding artists, and joined the studio as a background singer.
