Mary J. Blige performed at the Beacon Theatre last night and discussed her anticipated documentary, “Mary J. Blige: The London Sessions.” See pics from the show and the afterparty inside…
We’ve got the 411 on the Queen of Hip Hop Soul…..
Last night, Mary J. Blige walked the red carpet at the Tribeca Film Festival to celebrate her highly anticipated documentary: “Mary J. Blige: The London Sessions,” at The Beacon Theatre. The film documents Mary’s journey as she relocates to London to work with some of the UK’s top artists (Sam Smith, Disclosure, Emeli Sande) while redefining her sound.
Shown above with her husband/manager Kendu Isaacs, Mary wore a Barbara Bui Fringe Leather Jacket, burgundy dress and peep toe heels.
The “Right Now” singer eventually hit the stage of the famed Beacon Theatre where she took a sold-out crowd through the motions and emotions of The London Sessions, What’s The 411?, My Life, Share My World and more.

At the afterparty…
Mary and a group of special VIPs headed down the street to the rooftop of the Empire Hotel.
Designer Catherine Malandrino came to show Mary some love.
Handsome actor Andrew Holland (“Friends WIth Benefits”) jammed out with Mary & Co.
He cocktailed with Zaraah Abrahams and DeAnne Rauf.
“Blood, Sweat and Heels” star Geneva Thomas was also at the afterparty. Speaking of Geneva, she got a good deal in the bottle-smashing fight she had with Melyssa Ford. Thanks to her clean record, she pled guilty Thursday morning to third degree assault, a reduced charge, and got 10 days community service. She also got a year of probation and has to stay away from Melyssa unless they’re filming.
Let’s hope their reunion taping is held in a bottle-free zone.
