I had the pleasure of attending an in-store signing with Mary J. Blige on Tuesday, December 22nd. The event was held at Best Buy on 14th St. Union Square here in New York City.
Literally, tons of people awaited Mary’s arrival out in the freezing cold. As they let 50 fans in at a time, the facial expressions of the fans were very happy and eager to meet the Queen of Soul. To them, it was well worth the wait. Some fans had been waiting since 11 am. Mary’s signing started at 8pm. That’s dedication!
Before Mary’s entrance, a young kid that was waiting in line with his mother decided to give the audience and paparazzi a little MJ impression. Good Times.
Also, one of Mary’s most dedicated fans had her signature tattooed on his chest with her album in-hand ready to be signed. Wow. I could not believe my eyes.
