Mary J. Blige Spreading Love, Life On Spring Tour

Musiq joining singer's first nationwide trek since 2002.

Mary J. Blige proclaimed her happiness on her latest album, Love & Life. Now she'll share that emotion with fans around the country.

The singer has announced a national tour beginning April 11 in Miami and ending May 9 in Universal City, California.

This will be Mary's first U.S. tour since performing early-2002 theater dates in support of No More Drama. Since then, Blige has done high-profile spot performances at the Super Bowl and MTV Video Music Awards.

Blige, currently performing a weeklong stint in an off-Broadway play (see "Mary J. Blige Changes Her Mind About Drama"), will feature special guest Musiq during the monthlong trek. The soul crooner released his third album, Soulstar, in December.
