My Conversation With Mary J. Blige

Tonight on PBS, I sit down with nine-time Grammy Award winner and R&B superstar Mary J. Blige. In addition to providing insight into the creation of her first holiday CD, "A Mary Christmas," which also marks her first collaboration with legendary producer David Foster, she talks about the trajectory of her 21-year career.

In the clip below, Blige talks about being her worst critic and what she hears in her singing voice now that she didn't hear at the beginning of her career.

For more of our conversation, be sure to tune in to Tavis Smiley tonight on PBS. Check out our website for your local TV listings: http://www.pbs.org/tavis. After the show, tweet me @TavisSmiley #MaryJBlige and let me know what you thought about our conversation.
