She was enshrined with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. "It set me free from all of the negativity and all of the confusion happening outside of our home".

DEL BARCO: A sidewalk star honoring her musical career, including multi-platinum albums and hit singles, such as "Real Love", "Not Gon' Cry" and "Family Affair". The singer and actress were supported by her longtime friend, Diddy and record producer, Andre Harrel who both gave lovely speeches about her.

Blige was discovered when an amateur recording of Anita Baker's "Caught Up In The Rapture" that Blige made in a mall recording booth made its way to Harrell, then the president and CEO of the hip-hop and rhythm-and-blues label Uptown Records, who promptly signed her to a contract.

Blige has been nominated for 31 Grammys and won nine.

"Whatever she is going through, she knows she has a responsibility to help others who are going through the same thing", Diddy said (via Variety). She pours everything into a record and into a performance.

ANDRE HARRELL: I heard the truth. Regardless of who hated me or who didn't. "I say that not because of arrogance", she said, but because of all that she has endured to achieve this feat including her current nasty divorce with her former husband.

SEAN COMBS: We been through a whole lot. I used to pick Mary up from the projects, and we would just drive down the highway in NY and just - we would just dream. We want to be something for our people. "We wanted to shake up the world", the Bad Boys Records founder told the crowd.

(Singing) Happy birthday to you.
