Mary J. Blige STILL has the pipes and just turned The Oscars into a Sunday service in a Mississippi baptist church.
Blige, who is up for two Oscars herself for Mudbound, annihilated her performance the film’s song “Mighty River.”
The choir in the background also put the cherry on the cake.
Of course, Twitter was wrapped in all the blessings...

Acting-wise, the 47-year-old megatalent is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for Mudbound. She’s the first person to be nominated for Supporting Actress and Original Song in the same year.
