Ah just hearing Whitney’s voice continually reminds me, the Gift is gone. But I’m so happy she left us with this upbeat song. To me it’s like what I hear her singing even in heaven. We definitely Celebrate her! The song, Celebrate, was produced by R. Kelly, is from her final movie debut, Sparkle, with Jordin Sparks as her co-star. Enjoy.
Mary J. Blige channels her inner rock goddess on “Any Way You Want It,” her cover of Journey’s 1980s hit. The song appears on the soundtrack to Rock of Ages, the ’80s musical in which she plays gentlemen’s club owner Justice. The star-studded cast includes Tom Cruise, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Brand, Julianne Hough, and Alec Baldwin. See Mary take charge in the film, which opens in theaters on June 15. (via Rap-Up)
