Mary J Blige’s ‘My Life’ (2021)
Directed by Vanessa Roth
Produced by Quincy Jones
Starring Mary J. Blige, Sean
A compelling look at the life and work of Grammy-winning artist Mary J. Blige.
Merv was selected by executive producer Quincy Jones and Mary J. Blige to write the underscore to Mary’s feature-length documentary film, directed by Vanessa Roth for Amazon Prime Video. Since the score was composed during the COVID-19 pandemic, Merv performed many of the instruments himself and recorded additional musicians and a solo vocalist remotely via Zoom and similar platforms. The result is a poignant, emotional score, providing the perfect support for the film’s many interviews and animated flashbacks.
