[BlackTree TV - Los Angeles] Mary J. Blige records a brand new song for The Help

Mary J. Blige has recorded a brand new song titled 'The Living Proof' for the new movie 'The Help', due in August.

Mary watched an early screening of the movie and then went away and wrote the song for the final version.

'The Help' is set in 1960s-Mississippi and three women who embark on a secret writing project. "The beautiful thing about these women is that they were very smart," says Blige in a statement. "They chose to walk in love and forgiveness."

She says the movie is about the inspiration to change. "To speak to so many women with this song means a lot to me," says Blige. "I wanted to be involved with this film, because I think we need to encourage each other more, we are here to tell a story."

'The Help' is based on the #1 New York Times Best Seller and will star Emma Stone, Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer.

It will premiere in American cinemas on August 12, 2011.

BURBANK, Calif. (May 26, 2011) —DreamWorks Pictures and Geffen Records announced today that multiple Grammy® Award--winning recording artist Mary J. Blige wrote and recorded an original song for the soundtrack of DreamWorks Pictures and Participant Media's THE HELP, a film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, opening in theaters August 12, 2011. "The Help" soundtrack - music from the Motion picture, will feature the original song from Mary J Blige "The Living Proof." The soundtrack, from Interscope Records, will be available Tuesday, July 26 at select Starbucks locations.

The song, "The Living Proof," was written and recorded by Blige especially for THE HELP after she saw a screening of the film, which takes place in 1960s-era Mississippi and chronicles the journey of three very different women who come together and embark on a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk. "The beautiful thing about these women is that they were very smart," says Blige. "They chose to walk in love and forgiveness."

The film really celebrates the courage to inspire change, "To speak to so many women with this song means a lot to me" says Blige. "I wanted to be involved with this film, because I think we need to encourage each other more, we are here to tell a story."

Blige has received 9 Grammy® Awards and four American Music Awards as well as recorded eight multi-platinum albums. Mary J. Blige has sold over 50 million albums worldwide and her next album "My Life Too....The Journey Continues" will be released Sept 20, 2011.
