To end what can only be described as an interesting evening, Mary J. Blige joined The BET Honors 2015 to perform her latest single “Doubt.” Queen Mary waltzed on the stage decked in an all-black sequined dress and thanked the honorees for not giving up in the face of adversity. She appropriately performed her inspirational single with choir-like background vocals as the audience stared in awe. Keeping in line with the theme of the evening and Black History Month, images of iconic African Americans were projected on the background with the likes of this year’s honorees, Muhammad Ali, Angela Davis, Toni Morrison and, of course, a beautiful image of Mary herself with President Barack Obama.
You already know that when Auntie Mary performs, there are a limited amount of dry eyes left in the house. As the “No More Drama” songstress sang through her pain with perfect vocals, the honorees all looked on with faces filled with emotion. The single was a perfect tribute to the honorees, who like Mary J. didn’t doubt themselves and became successes in their own right. Watch the inspirational performance right here and let Mary move you with her live performance of “Doubt.”
