It’s always great to see a new artist pay homage to a music industry veteran, especially when that person is one of their idols. This was the case for K. Michelle recently.
During an appearance on New York’s Power 105 ‘The Breakfast Club,’ the “Love ‘Em All” singer ran into Mary J. Blige and oh was she overwhelmed with joy when she met the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul.
“Hi Mary,” introduces a nervous and emotional K. Michelle. "I'm K. Michelle and I really love you. I really, really, really love you, and I thank you. You made me want to be a singer. I thank you for everything. You’re absolutely amazing, and I just wanna say thank you, thank you so much.
Mary replied back with, “You have an amazing voice,” before K unleashed another segment of heartfelt gratitude.
“I hope to one day have half the career that you have,” adds K. “You have touched so many people, and to be able to stand here with you today, that is unreal, and I just want to say thank you… imma keep stalking you.”
K walked away holding back tears, proclaiming, “Oh God! ”
