Today (March 7), Mary J. Blige took to social media to reveal the first copy of her debut children’s book “Mary Can!”

“I’m so excited about ‘Mary Can!’” Blige said in a video posted to her Instagram account. “I almost want to cry because it’s funny how you can go through so much hell, and it can turn into someone else’s heaven. This book is dedicated to little kids all over the world that feel like they can’t. Remember, I said ‘Mary Can!’ and you can too. It was inspired [by] a real part of my life.”

The Good Morning Gorgeous singer previously stated that people always used tell her “no” and what she could not do. But instead of letting it tear her down, she said that it as motivation. “And I use all of that to help someone, a little girl somewhere in the world whose being told that she can’t, that you can do whatever that you put your mind and your heart to,” Blige continued. “Remember you can do it ’cause ‘Mary Can!’ too.”

“It feels unreal opening the first copy of my picture book!” the queen of hip hop soul captioned the post. “This is so personal for me. Thank you, Harper Kids and Ashleigh Corrin, for making this dream come true. Preorders are available through the link in my bio.”
