This Dutch Caribbean island welcomes Grammy-Award-winning singer, songwriter, actress, producer, and philanthropist, Mary J. Blige on Saturday, May 28.

Aruba Tourism Authority CEO,  Ronella Croes, commented: ‘As we begin our return to normal life, I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with sharing our culture, hospitality and award-winning beaches with attendees and the musical artists during the five days of the festival on the One Happy Island.”
