#Marks / Signs
1Soulful voice
2Blonde hair


1I don't think there's anything they can say about me that I haven't said about myself already. And I would be an absolute total liar, and my fans would not respect me, if I said that my life and my marriage are perfect. But we absolutely love each other; we have fun together - it's great. Then we have our struggles, and we work through it. That's life.
2My God is a God who wants me to have things. He wants me to bling. He wants me to be the hottest thing on the block. I don't know what kind of God the rest of y'all are serving, but the God I serve says, "Mary, you need to be the hottest thing this year, and I'm gonna make sure you're doing that."
3I don't know. Only God knows where the story ends for me, but I know where the story begins. It's up to us to choose, whether we win or lose and I choose to win.
4It almost kills me to say I'm in love, because as soon as men hear that shit, they're gone.


1Friends with Taraji P. Henson.
2New Album out named the breakthrough [January 2006]
3A huge fan of Led Zeppelin since she was a child, the singer went so far as to perform the band's classic "Stairway to Heaven" as a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show (1986) (13 April 2010).
4Has a powerful mezzo-soprano vocal range.
5She personally asked Mariah Carey and Sean Combs to appear in her video for "No More Drama", because she felt they both had their fair share of drama recently.

13Credits her husband, Kendu Isaacs, for helping her clean up her act and to overcome her drug and alcohol addiction.

15The title track from Mary's latest album "No More Drama" contains samples of the theme The Young and the Restless (1973).

17Never graduated from high school.
