Blige has branched out into acting, producer and entrepreneur, but she always comes back to where she started – music.

“My career has been such an incredible and unexpected journey that has included many twists and turns in paths I never could have imagined such as acting, producing, starting businesses and now even my own music festival,” Blige said in a statement.

“Through all of this, I’ve always, in one way or another, returned to my first love, music. To be honored in this moment with the Icon Award at the Billboard Music Awards is an incredible honor and one that really humbles me.”

Expect a stunning performance from Blige as she accepts her legendary award. Many fans will probably be hoping she plays her top hits and does her infamous two-step stomp.

Regardless, everything will be just fine.
