Mary J. Blige: Excited for Return on One Life To Live

at . Comments

Previous reports had indicated Mary J. Blige would perform on One Life to Live for back-to-back episodes airing this Thursday and Friday. Now, however, it appears as though the award-winning singer will appear on February 15 and February 18 instead.

Either way, she's excited to make a return to Llanview

"It's absolutely amazing to be integrated into a soap opera I've watched since I was a little girl," said Blige. "I performed on the show two years ago and had a ball, and I am beyond thrilled to be welcomed back again."


Brian Frons, Daytime President of Disney ABC-Television Group is equally psyched.

"Mary J. Blige represents another of today's top recording artists who sees the power of ABC Daytime as a promotional platform to reach the highly engaged, passionate audience of women 18-49," he said. "Music is an important component to daytime storytelling -- it is relevant, contemporary and builds emotional intensity."

Blige will perform on One Life to Live as part of Starr Manning's 16th birthday party. We simply went bowling for our 16th birthday celebration.
