The queen of R‘n’B is making her Sydney Opera House debut
If eight multi-platinum albums, nine Grammy Awards and five American Music Awards weren’t enough, 2016 saw Blige return with her chicest effort yet: a full-length R’n’B wonder titled Strength of a Woman.
The ‘Family Affair’ and ‘No More Drama’ singer-songwriter has been touring almost every year since 1997, but has never before performed at the House.
Influenced by the music of Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan and Gladys Knight, Blige has been long celebrated for her gritty and groovy style that blends hip hop, soul and R’n’B.
Blige will be performing tracks from Strength of a Woman at Bluesfest in Byron Bay as well as this show at the Opera House on Monday April 10. There’s no doubt Blige will be pulling out all the stops (and hits!) for her adoring Melbourne audience.
