Mary J. Blige excited to bring festival to New York City

The Grammy-winning R&B icon's annual festival and summit will be taking place in New York City. Marking the only festival presented by an all-Black, all-woman team, the empowering three-day event runs from 10-12 May for America's Mother's Day weekend. Blige told People magazine, "It means so much to bring it home." The festival has moved to New York from its previous base in Atlanta. Blige explained, "This is where I wanted it to be originally, but we ended up in Atlanta for two years, and it was successful. I love Atlanta..."
