Iconic Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, actress and philanthropist Mary J. Blige has completed her first-ever Christmas album entitled "A Mary Christmas", for Verve records, making it the first album collaboration between Blige and legendary producer and Chairman of The Verve Music Group, David Foster.

"Working with David Foster is a singers dream. I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to make this soulful classic Christmas album with him. David's music has touched so many lives and i'm so proud of what we've created and I believe my fans will love it as much as I do." said Mary J. Blige.

"A Mary Christmas" features Blige's soulful interpretation of classic Christmas numbers including "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" and "The Christmas Song". Blige is joined by a number of A-list guests, starting with Barbra Streisand, who duets with Blige on "When You Wish Upon A Star", along with Jessie J on "Do You Hear What I Hear", The Clark Sisters join Blige on "The First Noel" and "Noche de Paz" is a Spanish collaboration with Marc Anthony.

Other highlights on the album include "Little Drummer Boy", "My Favourite Things", "This Christmas", "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer", and Tino Rossi's "Petit Papa Noel".

David Foster comments "There are so many things that I find inspiring about Mary, but I guess it always comes back to the fact that she has no limits and no boundaries. She doesn't think of herself as black or white, or yellow or red, or male or female. She just thinks of herself as a singer and she's a great singer".

"A Mary Christmas" is due for release on the 2nd of December 2013.
