Mary J. Blige is getting ready to produce the “Strength of a Woman Festival and Summit.”
The singer will be teaming up with Pepsi to bring the three-day festival to life. It is set to have “activities centered around music, comedy, and community building according to reports.
This event is scheduled to take place in Atlanta, Georgia from May 6th to May 8th. It will also have a lineup of stars including Chaka Khan, Xscape, Ella Mai, and many more. Blige is also set to perform.
She said in a statement, “The idea for the festival came to us after early listening sessions of my latest album with my family and friends and women in the industry. Each time, the people are 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 sis helped them find their voice and strength.”
She continued, “We felt like after two years of being inside and having to endure so much, that this was the type of experience that people, especially women, 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. I am proud to create this with my sisters and I look forward to an undeniably beautiful and special.”
Tickets will be on sale on Tuesday, March 8th at 10 am.
