An open letter from P.Diddy, Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige to vote for Obama

jay-z

It ain’t over, until it’s over. There is still so much work to be done. The thrill of victory is just 1 week away. We hear it in the streets, we feel it in our hearts and it’s burning in our souls. Together we have successfully registered the most young voters in the history of the modern political process. We called a State Of Emergency on October 3rd at 6:00AM and our culture stood up and recognized the importance of registering millions of voters. From 1st time voters who have just come of age to vote, to those who are participating for the 1st time in the voting process. Your commitment to Change will continue to ring across our America, because we all are in the Right State Of Mind.

Where it stands today, we are on the verge of making history, the kind of history that will be apart of our cultures legacy. The kind of history that bridges the gap between race, religion and culture, the kind of history that will ignite a light that shines bright from generation to generation, screaming that our voice does matter and our vote does count. The kind of history that will enable the next generation of leaders to encourage vision, not division, to encourage hope, not hopelessness, to encourage the power of the people, not the power politics of the few.

With only 7 days left before we vote for change, let’s hold ourselves accountable and responsible. No more excuses, no more mistakes and no more time to waste. If you have the opportunity to vote early in your state then vote today. If you are voting on November 4th, make preparation today. Bring your family and friends and plan for the party at the polls. Make November 4th the day we celebrate change – The day we celebrate freedom of choice. The day we celebrate power of all people. Lets all come together on November 4th, because it’s a family reunion. It’s our time and we are all in the Right State Of Mind.

We have 7 days to Vote for Change. 7 days to Vote to Make History. We can not slow down. We can not let up. We must push through to history until the final vote is cast and the last ballot is counted. We can, we must, and we will Make It Happen. Vote Obama/Biden on November 4th.

God Bless,

Mary J. Blige and Robin Thicke on tour

When you think of the best that Soul music has to offer this millennium, two artists emerge at the top of the list as the purveyors: the infallible and multi-platinum, multi-Grammy Award winning superstar Mary J. Blige and the award-winning multi-platinum balladeer Robin Thicke. The two stars have joined forces to bring the musical experience of the “Love-Soul Tour” to their fans starting on September 19th in Virginia Beach, VA and ending on October 22nd in Oahu, HI.

Mary epitomizes love and is the essence of soul. Her music transcends boundaries of race, religion and politics. Mary speaks directly to the soul about the pitfalls of life as well as the healing power of love. With her many accolades Mary has earned an extraordinary place in American popular culture. Any one of us can go through each of her records and be empowered by the many emotions of love: good, bad, and indifferent.

On the 18-date “Love-Soul Tour,” Blige and Thicke will pick the best songs in their repertoire that bring out the love and touch the soul of their fans. A sample of what Blige will offer are hit singles such as a revamped version of “No More Drama,” “Love, No Limit” and “Be Without You,” while Robin will perform stellar hits “Stupid Things,” “Complicated,” and “Lost Without You,” which drove his sophomore album to platinum status. The two also collaborated on a special remix of Robin’s single, “Magic,” for the tour.

The set of the “Love-Soul Tour” will evoke a feeling of a time and a place that grabbed you emotionally and will take you through different aspects of your life. To add to the uniqueness of the tour, there will also be a special limited edition coffee table book available for purchase at the venue. The book features exclusive never-seen-before images of Mary J. Blige.

Mary recently wrapped the sold-out historic “Heart of the City,” with Jay-Z. Once again, she reaffirmed her place in musical history as one of the few artists whose star stands the test of time with more than fifteen (15) successful years in the music business. Her eighth (8th) and current studio album Growing Pains, released 12/18 on Matriarch/Geffen reached platinum status in three weeks. Over the span of her career she has amassed over 25 awards including the eight (8) Grammy Awards, three (3) American Music Awards, ten (10) Billboard, a BET Award, a MTV Award, ten (10) Soul Train Awards and much more. Each album released has attained platinum status with many selling multi-platinum; totaling sales of more than 40 million copies worldwide. With each song she has penetrated her fan’s hearts; reaching deeply into the depths of their souls.

The award-winning multi-platinum superstar, Robin Thicke returns to center stage with his new album Something Else on September 30th, a joyful and modern tribute to the ’70s soul and pop records that have inspired an extraordinary career. This double platinum recording artist, is coming out off of his hugely successful Evolution Of Robin Thicke where he garnered VH1 Soul/ Vibe award for “Best Breakthrough Artist,” nominations from BET (“Best Male R&B” and “Viewer’s Choice”), Soul Train (“Best R&B Soul Album, Male”), MTV VMA (“Male Artist of the Year”), MOBO (Best Song, “Lost Without U”), and the American Music Awards (“Favorite Breakthrough Artist”.)

Opening the tour for Blige and Thicke is Dave Young, the soulful debut artist off of Blige’s label, Matriarch Records. Young is already a Grammy Award winning songwriter having penned the Mary J. Blige/Chaka Khan Duet, “Disrespectful” off of Khan’s Funk This. Young is committed to continuing the time-honored tradition of artists like Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and Donnie Hathaway with pure Soul music. His soon-to-be released debut album is due early 2009.

“I am so excited about going out with Mary again; she is so amazing! I went out with her on The Breakthrough tour and I learned so much from watching her; how she would sing to her fans, connect with them and include them. She made me realize connecting is what it’s all about. That’s my goal on this tour – to connect,” states Young.
