Mary J. Blige Teams With NASA To Promote STEM To Women

Kind of an odd pairing, but maybe it'll work, or at least, draws attention.

Superstar Mary J. Blige has teamed up with NASA to promote more women into STEM careers. Here's a brief synopsis accompanying the video:

In this second of two public service announcements, award-winning recording artist Mary J. Blige appears with veteran NASA space shuttle astronaut Leland Melvin to encourage young women to expand their career choices by studying science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Both PSAs are now on NASA TV and the agency's website at: NASA's Summer of Innovation (SoI) project and Blige's Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now (FFAWN) both show students the many possibilities available if they follow their dreams and reach for the stars
