Mary J. Blige is enlisting the help of Queen Latifah and Elle Magazine‘s Editor-in-Chief Robbie Meyers to co-host her second annual Mary J. Blige Honors Concert.

The show is slated to take place on May 1 at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom and will benefit Blige’s Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now (FFAWN).

It will also feature guest performances by Christina Aguilera, Anita Baker, Jill Scott, Jennifer Hudson and Corinne Bailey Rae.

Proceeds from the FFAWN organization’s second annual Mary J. Blige Honors Concert will go to FFAWN’s scholarship fund.

The organization sent 25 young ladies to college last year with full four-year scholarships.

The FFAWN organization was established in 2007 by Blige and Steve Stoute.

The goal of the organization is to inspire young women to achieve higher goals.
