Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter Mary J. Blige is closing out the North American leg of her Strength of a Woman tour in Oakland on Saturday. The tour promotes the release of her 13th album, Strength of a Woman, which includes collaborations with the likes of DJ Khaled, Kaytranada, Kanye West, and Quavo from Migos. Blige has not let her personal life distract her from her music commitments; the singer divorced her longtime husband Martin “Kendu” Isaacs last summer. Tickets for this show do not come cheap, but the venue should make for an intimate night. If you were at Prince’s “Piano & A Microphone” shows at the Paramount last year, then you know these types of shows are worth every penny. Don’t miss your chance to see the “Queen of hip-hop soul.”

Saturday, Sept. 9, 8 p.m., $39.50-$225.00, VIP packages available, Paramount Theatre, 2025 Broadway, Oakland,
