"The cast and I, being huge fans of Mary J. Blige's tremendous talent, are thrilled that she will be appearing on 'One Life to Live,'" says executive producer Frank Valentini. "Music has always been a pivotal part of 'One Life to Live,' and Mary J. Blige helps us continue the tradition."

Released on December 20, 2005, "The Breakthrough" soared to the top of the Billboard chart to debut at #1, scanning 727,163 units and earning the honor of being the best opening week for a solo R&B female artist in SoundScan history. Blige is set to kick off her summer tour, "The Breakthrough Experience," on July 1 in Houston, TX. Her six prior platinum and multi-platinum hit albums include such classics as "No More Drama," "What's the 411," "My Life," "Share My World," "Mary" and "Love & Life."
