Mary J Blige gets Hollywood Walk of Fame star after remarkable year

With a Hollywood star added to her already cemented legacy, Blige's story now lives on forever. The nine-time Grammy-winning singer has been getting lots of award nominations for acting in the film "Mudbound". Mary unveiled the 2,626th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

"I have to give a really big thanks to my fans because without you, this isn't possible", she said.

DEL BARCO: A sidewalk star honoring her musical career, including multi-platinum albums and hit singles, such as "Real Love", "Not Gon' Cry" and "Family Affair".

"When I was a little girl growing up in the projects, I just loved to sing, and I wanted to sing because it set me free from all of the negativity and all of the confusion that was happening outside of our home", Blige told the crowd gathered for the ceremony in front of the Eastown apartment complex on Hollywood Boulevard.

Blige gushed about Combs, saying he helped keep her going in the hard times. BET executive Debra Lee was among those present, "It was important for me to be here because I love Mary J. Blige. I say it because I know that now, and I know my worth, and what this means". The singer and actress were supported by her longtime friend, Diddy and record producer, Andre Harrel who both gave attractive speeches about her. She pours everything into a record and into a performance. The hip-hop mogul was also on hand to honor her. "Whatever she is going through, she knows she has a responsibility for those going through the same thing", Combs said. "We started from nothing". "I used to pick Mary up in the projects and drive on the highways of NY and just dream. And we wanna come and shake up the world.' And we did that".
