What a sweet surprise! It must have meant so much to her!

Mary J. Blige was treated a surprise 40th birthday party by her husband Martin Kendu Isaacs Tuesday night, and the singer was reportedly so shocked that she was reduced to tears!

During the desert-themed celebration at Skylight West in NYC - with celebrities like Jay-Z, Beyoncé, and Gayle King in attendance - Blige's idol, Anita Baker, even made a surprise musical appearance, and the birthday girl even got to join in!

A source explains:

"They brought in palm trees and sand. Mary J. said [that] growing up in the projects she was lost, and owes her life to being inspired by the song 'Caught Up in the Rapture' by Anita Baker. Anita got up to toast her and started to sing the song. Mary J. began crying and joined in."

That sounds like an absolute dream come true!

We can't even imagine how thrilled she must have been to be surrounding by friends with whom to share that experience!

Congratulations, bb! And happy happy to you!

    I thought she was in her late 50s? I'm not kidding, I literally thought wow she looks great for 56 or 57 and how she ages well….. 40? Maybe it is a misprint

    @deveal - How mature of you, telling people to kill themselves (it is people like you that make this world as ignorant and hostile as it is)…And she isn't a music legend anyways… Far from it.

    I couldn't name you one Mary J Blige song, she's not a legend in my eyes, sorry. She looks at least 50 I am sorry. My aunt who's 53 looks much younger than this! I am not hating just telling it like it is…

    Re: deveal2009 – They need to "kill themselves" for their opinions. That's nice. Your just as immature as they are. I like MJB, but truth is she really isn't aging that well at all. If I didn't know any better I'd probably think late 40s or early 50s.
