Exclusive Interview: Mary J. Blige on Amy Winehouse [VIDEO]


ACThePlug had a chance to shoot with Mary J Blige this past winter at a private viewing of her The London Sessions documentary in Chicago.

The documentary, which premiered at TriBeCa Film Festival, chronicles the recording of Mary J. Blige’s 13th studio album The London Sessions featuring behind-the-scenes footage of Blige recording with Sam Smith, Disclosure, and Emeli Sandé.

The most touching moment is when Blige documented meeting Mitchell Winehouse, the father of Amy Winehouse.

Watch the video above to hear how Mary spoke candidly about how Amy Winehouse affected her but more profoundly how she felt personally responsible for not making it to Amy before she passed.
