Los Angeles - Mary J Blige will live stream a show from Los Angeles ahead of the launch of her latest album.
The Grammy award-winning singer has collaborated with director Adam Shankman to broadcast a concert on her VEVO channel on YouTube on Thursday as part of the American Express Unstaged music series, before the release of her new record My Life II... The Journey Continues (Act I) on November 21.
Mary said: "I can't wait to share in this amazing experience with fans around the world as they join me on a timeless journey of celebration and reflection.
"I'm really looking forward to immersing myself in Adam Shankman's creative vision for an unforgettable American Express Unstaged performance."
Mary is the latest in a line of acclaimed musicians to take part in the livestream series with Duran Duran collaborating with David Lynch ahead of the release of their 13th album earlier this year and Arctic Monkeys teaming up with Terry Gilliam at Madison Square Garden in New York last year.
In October, Coldplay launched their album Mylo Xyloto with a concert at the Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas in Madrid and frontman Chris Martin revealed the band chose the venue to match director Anton Corbijn's stunning visuals.
Speaking about the concert, he said: "We decided we'd like to do a concert which we'd broadcast on YouTube live around the world and just looked for some of the most beautiful buildings we could find and this is what we came up with, in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.".
Mary J Blige's American Express Unstaged performance will be live-streamed at 04:00 in the UK and 20:00 in Los Angeles on Thursday November 17 at www.youtube.com/MaryJBligeVEVO.
