For the special occasion, the 47-year-old R&B singer was joined by rap mogul Sean Combs, who led the assembled crowd in serenading her with "Happy Birthday". NPR's Mandalit del Barco was on the scene yesterday as she was honored on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Mary addressed the crowd giving her thanks for the recognition.
BLIGE: I'm so grateful for this star right now because I've earned it probably three times. "It set me free from all of the negativity and all of the confusion happening outside of our home". She won her first solo Grammy in 2003 for best female rhythm and blues vocal performance for "He Think I Don't Know" from her album, "Dance For Me". The singer and actress were supported by her longtime friend, Diddy and record producer, Andre Harrel who both gave handsome speeches about her.

The Queen Of Hip-Hop Soul was celebrated for her stellar career with one of the most prestigious honors in the entertainment business.
"We would just dream - we were saying..." "I say that not because of arrogance", she said, but because of all that she has endured to achieve this feat including her current nasty divorce with her former husband. We wanna be big, we wanna be something for our people. "We've come too far to lose / We'll win this battle".
