Internationally acclaimed artist and actress Mary J. Blige shared the trailer of her new documentary, My Life, on her Twitter page Tuesday. We know her as an icon who has contributed so much to music and entertainment, but in her new documentary, Mary J. Blige gives us backstage passes to the story behind My Life, one of her most successful albums. The legend shares how the album saved her in one of the darkest times in her life, and how it saved others. The trailer includes a montage of clips of Mary J. Blige’s tour around the world, highlighting her impact. Taraji P. Henson and other commentators are in the trailer speaking on how Mary J. Blige paved the way for many people. Though all of her albums and projects are record-breaking and instant household classics, My Life launched Mary J. Blige into new heights because of her being able to share herself in her most vulnerable state. The documentary will be released June 25 on Amazon Prime. https://twitter.com/maryjblige/status/1399790323241558017

Kroger Houston, as part of Kroger Health – the healthcare division of The Kroger Co. (NYSE: KR) – is eager to motivate more Americans to get the COVID-19 vaccine to better protect communities across America. Through the newly launched #CommunityImmunity Giveaway, Kroger Health will provide customers and Kroger Family of Companies associates the opportunity to win life-changing prizes like one of five $1 million checks or one of 50 “groceries for a year.” The giveaway starts Thursday and runs through July 10, with winners scheduled to be selected weekly. The #CommunityImmunity Giveaway was created by Kroger Health to support the Biden Administration’s national effort to have at least 70% of U.S. adults receive their first COVID-19 vaccine dose by July 4. “Since day one of this pandemic, Kroger’s most urgent priority has been the health and safety of our associates, customers, and communities,” said Joe Kelley, President of Kroger, Houston Division. “Kroger’s #CommunityImmunity Giveaway is designed to inspire more adults to get vaccinated and help Houston recover and move ahead.” How the #CommunityImmunity Giveaway Works: Between June 3, 2021 and July 10, 2021, Kroger Health is giving away $5 million, reflecting a $1 million winner each week for five weeks, as well as 50 “groceries for a year,” ten each week for five weeks, each valued at $13,000 (which is the equivalent of $250 a week for 52 weeks). To enter, participants must be 18 years of age or older, and legally reside and physically be located in one of the 50 United States or Washington, D.C. To enter online, entrants must receive or have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at a Kroger Family Company location or by a Kroger Family Company healthcare professional at an off-site event. To schedule a vaccine, visit Kroger.com. To enter the giveaway and view the Official Rules, visit KrogerGiveaway.com. Additionally, The Kroger Family of Companies will continue to award a one-time payment of $100 to associates who become fully vaccinated. As of today, the Kroger Health’s organization’s pharmacists, nurse practitioners, and healthcare technicians have administered more than 4.7 million COVID-19 vaccines — and that number continues to increase daily. Kroger Health has created more equitable access to the COVID-19 vaccine through its scheduling tool, walk-in appointments, and mass vaccination off-site clinics. According to the CDC, 62.8% of adults in America have received at least one vaccination shot.
