One thought on “Mary J. Blige to star in Nina Simone movie

  1. I like Mary as and actress. In the few small roles I have seen her in I was impressed. Mary knows personally about chaotic relationships and if she puts that much emotion into this role as she has in the music in the past, this will be a great film. Looking forward to seeing it.
