“Strength Of A Woman Festival & Summit” By Mary J. Blige
2022 is a big year for Miss Mary J. Blige.
This Monday, Mary J. Blige continued her streak of making major career moves. She announced her inaugural “Strength of a Woman Festival and Summit” in collaboration with Pepsi and Live Nation Urban.
The festival is set to take place in Atlanta, Georgia from May 6th – 8th (intentionally scheduled Mother’s Day weekend) Consisting of “three days devoted to music, comedy, and community building.” All “unapologetically curated for and by women.”
“The idea for the festival came to us after early listening sessions of my latest album with my family, friends and women in the industry.” The Good Morning Gorgeous artist shared
“Each time, the people in the room would share a story, oftentimes of heartbreak or pain, but they always ended with joy and love and how their girlfriends or mom or sister helped them find their voice and strength.”
Blige and her collaborators felt as though a festival dedicated to women was deserved. “I’m so grateful to all of the performers, vendors, and participants for committing themselves to our inaugural event and I am so excited to do this in a city that has been rocking with me since the very beginning of my career,” she said.
“I am proud to create this with my sisters and I look forward to an undeniably beautiful and special experience.”
Other famous faces will grace the stage alongside Blige this May. Including Ella Mai, Chaka Khan, Xscape, City Girls, Queen Naija, Kiana Ledé, Emotional Oranges, Sevyn Streeter, Baby Tate, Rubi Rose, Ms. Pat, Kierra Sheard, and Le’Andria Johnson, among others.
Presale tickets for the event went live this morning at 10 AM ET. General on-sale will be available this Thursday, March 10th at 10 AM ET https://www.soawfestival.com
