The AP is reporting that Mary J. Blige will write a new song for a documentary focusing on sexual assault in the U.S. military.
The R&B star was at the Sundance Film Festival Friday for the premiere ofThe Invisible War, in which her song Need Someonealready is heard over the closing credits. Producer Amy Ziering said that Blige, 41, would contribute an original song for the movie, which looks at the experiences of men and women who are attacked by their military colleagues and the difficulty of prosecuting such crimes.
Blige’s voice has been heard in a number of film soundtracks before. The Help features her singing The Living Proof, a Golden Globe nominee this year for best original song.
