Soul Fixin'

Sister J. Blige On Oprah

While cruising the 'net this morning I came across something that is Public Soul Announcement worthy. It's a clip of Sister J. Blige performing 'Stay Down' on The Oprah Winfrey Show a few months ago. I'm not sure how this performance managed to evade my keen soul radar but I'm glad I found it. Dressed to the nines, Mary puts a hurtin' on 'Stay Down,' the album version pales in comparison to this live performance. If you are under the impression that MJB has lost a bit of soul with recent releases The Breakthrough and Growing Pains, this performance proves Mary is still the Queen of Hip Hop Soul.
