You'll 'Love' Mary J. On 'Later...With Jools Holland'

When Mary J. Blige is good, she's awesome. The imperfect wonder that is MJB performed a raw, acoustic version of "Need Someone To Love You," a cut from her soon-to-be-released album My Life II...The Journey Continues (Act 1), on the BBC's Later...with Jools Holland, and I must say that she took my breath away. She looked stunning in red, her hair was laid, but, most importantly, her voice was rich with the tension that defines the essence of Mary. The old scar on the side of her face makes it appear as if she is crying and is a great (if unintentional) prop in this performance. Clocking in at just over a minute in length, this is short but so very sweet. [H/T: PBB]
