Mary J. Blige wrote and recorded a brand new original song titled ‘The Living Proof’ especially for The Help after she saw a screening of the film, which takes place in 1960s-era Mississippi and chronicles the journey of three very different women who come together and embark on a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk.

The Help – “The Living Proof” by Mary J. Blige

Mary J. Blige

“The beautiful thing about these women is that they were very smart. They chose to walk in love and forgiveness.
To speak to so many women with this song means a lot to me. I wanted to be involved with this film, because I think we need to encourage each other more, we are here to tell a story.”

    Mary J. this is a beautiful song with an amazing singer. This song reminds me of my journey thru recovery with addiction. God bless you always sister.

    Ms. Blige, this is one of the most beautiful songs I’ve heard in a long while. Every word was fitting for this movie. I cry every time I hear this song, because of where I’ve been and where I am now. Sometimes I wonder if history is repeating itself in someways. The way some peoplle in our culture treat one another. No one else has to treat us the way we were treated back then; we are doing that to one another. Not lifting up, supporting and encouraging, but putting down those who are trying to follow Gods Will. God bless you and the world. Keep on putting out powerful songs.
    Thank you.

    This song will touch many people. Anyone who has embarked on a personal journey of self will relate to this. Whether its from drug addiction, suffering from a disease like cancer or HIV or an internal battle against our own demons. The song is inspirational and asks us to be our own “Living Proofs” that we will not be victims anymore, “we know where we are going, because we know where we’ve been”. MJB, you are my personal hero. To be able to put such powerful words together into this beautiful tribute to self. I thank you for being our ‘Living Proof’.

    talk about a full circle moment, that was the best ending, to a already great ending, I love and admire mary j. and her words and voice paid a beautiful tribute to all of those women, and every woman everywhere.

  6. Pat Wooldridge

    Mary J., the moment I heard the first notes of your song, I was stunned. Concentrated on every word. I waited until the very end of the credits to try and learn more about it—not knowing the title, exactly, I resolved to find the info online, so here I am! Oh, this beautiful song is unforgettable. So is your lovely voice.

    Though I have not had such prejudice directed toward me, I very much feel for anyone who has to endure it.
    All people have something that requires endurance if they are to prevail, and your song fits so many, many circumstances. Thank you for The Living Proof!

  7. Patty Williams

    One of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. WOW!! This really touched my heart. I had to sit and wait for all the credits to run to find out what the name of the song was and who sang it. I’m looking for the soundtrack. Just beautiful and touching. Can’t wait to watch the movie again and again.

  8. Alan

    In a way this song has meaning to each and every one of us. Think about it. What a beautiful ending to a GREAT movie.

  9. William Hopkins

    Song and movie touched me very deeply. My mom and all her sisters were maids in VA andi know the feeling and love they had and have for those children, even today. The song so touched me and I went thru a deep hurtful ordeal but I am still standing. I am the living proof. I am better today then yesterday and tomorrow, if God’s willing,I will be better. This song will help.

    Thank you

  10. Barry J

    Thank you Ms. Blige, for such a wonderful song that compliments a beautiful movie. You reflect the beauty and courage of many young women around the world, and indeed the many of our ancestors whose courage and struggle have gone unnoticed.
    Well done on the lyrics, you are surely gifted and have inspired me to express my own gifts with meaning and purpose. I have seen the film for a second time and like you it brought tears to my eyes. They were tears of courage, forgiveness and love.

    Thank you.

  11. Rin Sanada

    I just finished watching the movie and the ending song came on and I wanted to find it and so I searched for the soundtrack list and found this site. Thanks, I really like this song. It’s so beautiful^^

  12. Lise Jamieson

    Very touching. Very, very, very touching. I wish I could say “Eat my “S”” to others like; all the banks and all levels of government in all countries.


    Saw the movie the help, was super one song not on soundtrack carolina written by justin ? need to know who sings the song carolina please let me know this puzzles me

  14. Pat Wooldridge

    William Hopkins, I’m glad you’re still standing in spite of whatever may have happened to you. As I’ve already commented on how much I loved this movie, I won’t say it over again, but I’m THINKING it. I remember living in Kennebunkport, Maine and walking with my 2 very small children, down near the river, near a summer cottage, where I knocked on the door and asked permission to do some sketching near their yard.The lady called to her maid, who came to the door with a plate of cookies for my children to choose from. Right away I liked her and wished I could know her better. She was so kind and soft-spoken.
    My own grandmother and great-aunt did cleaning for others, all of their lives, and my grandmother took care of a judge’s children most summers as well. Although I do artwork, my day job is as a cleaning lady.

  15. Pat Wooldridge

    To Lise Jamieson, Life these days is difficult all the way around, isn’t it. We all have to do our best to be Living Proof, I guess.

  16. Suzy Black

    Wow! What an amazing story “The Help” We have come along way but still have far far to go. Will we get there? That is a big question. My Answer… It depends on the younger generation to see the true light in us human beings and make it “The living Proof”

  17. Candace

    This movie touched me in many ways, and I can’t help but quote something I once heard and have lived my life by. I’m sorry but I don’t know who said it:

    “I only believe in one race. The human race. “

  18. Siany

    The song playing during the benefit is called Oh Carolina by Justin Tapp. Not available on iTunes.

  19. lei

  20. sentria

    Beautiful song, beautiful voice & beautiful woman. Most importantly is the songs message. GOD inspired. Love, love, love this song. Want to have it as my new ringtone. So many times we tend to forget where we came from, this is a lil reminder, to keep pressing on inspite of an obstacles.

  21. Sr. Ma. Imelda

  23. nutty

    I love the song and the movie, they are both great they give you the push you need. I am so very touched.

    Oh am Ms Blige, I am a very huge fan of yours. Your songs always have meaning and that is what makes them so great!

  24. S

    Great song. MJB your voice is amazing. Movie was moving. Had a prof in college who told us about how she was raised by a African American woman in Arkansas and what a relationship they had and how much she loved her. Song motivates me to do something daily to make this world a better place.

  25. cyla

    I love this song it is aweome :)

  26. Pauline

    What a beautiful song. I am going to try and get the piano sheet music for it. Well done Mary J. Homage to our mothers and their mothers who didn’t have the opportunities we have today.

  27. Sofia Jönsson

    This song touched my heart and my soul so very much! I’ve just seen the film “The Help” and it showed so much how it was and in many ways still is for colored people and people from other parts of the world… All the injustice everywhere! That we all must show and have courage and faith!

    Together we can make a difference!

    I’m from a different corner of the world than where I’m now living. I’m a adoptee from South Korea. I came to Sweden when I was just a little baby, but my appearance, my looks is another…
    neither where you come from nor what you look like matters – it’s how you are as a human being is the only thing that matters for real! And we are all equally important and equally valuable!

    My best regards and wishes! / Sofia

    About the 5th time I have seen this movie. Can’t get enough. I grew up in Tennessee with a similar situation and never knew the “Help” weren’t family until the world taught me otherwise. Love this movie. God help those who think that the color of their skin makes them better in any way than other people. It is truly the heart that matters. I am a proud “white woman” who loves a PERSON, not a particular skin.
