R&B soulful songstress Mary J. Blige joins the ranks of other celebs like Fantasia Barrino, who recently earned her GED.

The 39-year-old recently announced on “Good Morning America” that she will be heading off to Howard University and plans to get her Bachelors in 2014.

Blige, who dropped out of school in the 11th grade, has had her fair share of drama throughout her life, from being molested as a child to battling drugs and being physically abused by a former lover. All of these situations derailed any plans for furthering her education.

The nine-time Grammy Award winner has refused to let life’s knocks lay her out flat, though, and has continued to be an inspiration to listeners. Her latest CD, “Stronger with Each Tear,” is undoubtedly a testament to her survival instinct.

Blige has not released any information on what her area of concentration will be at Howard, but rest assured, when the diva puts her mind to something, she follows through all the way.

The successful songstress plans to launch her fragrance, My Life, later this month and an eyewear line, Melodies, in the fall.

Congratulations, Mary, you’ve definitely proven that getting book smart is always a priority.
