Mary J. Blige’s highly anticipated Super Bowl LVI halftime show appearance will see her performing alongside Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and Kendrick Lamar. The 51-year-old singer was inducted by the Apollo Theater’s legendary Walk of Fame in 2021, making the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul  the youngest living artist to be honored with a spot.

“Miss Blige is more than the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, she is a multitalented artist who has paved the way for many of the artists we see today,” Apollo executive Kamilah Forbes told the waves of fans waiting outside the theater to pay homage to the R&B crooner. She added that Blige “is one of the defining voices of our generation” and helped “redefine what R&B and Hip-Hop could be.” The recognition allowed the Bronx-born singer to join the ranks of Aretha FranklinLittle RichardPatti LaBelleQuincy Jones, Ella Fitzgerald, Smokey Robinson, and the Temptations.
