I know I know at least 95% of all the lyrics to all the songs that Ms. Blige has ever sang .I hav been a devoted fan since "What's the 411".I was about 12.I only pray that one day I can actually see her live.A life long dream of mine.I love what she represents about being a strong blacc american,not jus a woman....a blacc woman.In the timeless words of Martin Lawrence.... . " y o u go,girl!"
