Mary J. Blige performed for a group of young women at a Starbucks Store in Seattle this week.
Starbucks closed the store for the concert, which very few people knew about. Many of the women didn't know who would be performing inside the coffee shop until Blige took the stage with Grammy award-winning producer David Foster.
Blige is a supporter of the Starbucks Community Stores, which donate a portion of the profits to a local charity. The community store in Seattle donates money to the YWCA.
Mary said: "It was everything for me to surprise them for them to not know I was coming or for them to not know what they were in for. I'm filled so full with love because I got a chance to give back."
The man who people knew as the "mastermind" behind Taco Bell's popular Doritos Locos Tacos has died of cancer.
41-year-old Todd Mills was vice president of media and information technology at the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce in Arkansas. He had an idea for the food in 2009, and after three years of trying, he finally saw it become a reality.
Mills said he had envisioned a taco shell made of Doritos chips.
He shared the idea with Frito Lay, which makes Doritos, and started an online campaign to encourage the company to make the orange taco shells a reality. Frito Lay told him the company didn't accept outside ideas about products, but in 2012, he received a call from Taco Bell. Corporate officials flew him to their California headquarters and drove him to its Taco Bell test kitchen, where he was among the first to try the new creation.
Taco Bell rolled out the Doritos Locos Tacos shells in March of that year at its almost 5,600 restaurants nationwide.
The hugely successful product line has helped boost Taco Bell sales since its introduction. The company has sold more than 600 million Doritos Locos Tacos, which it considers its most successful product launch ever.

During her two-hour set, she even paid homage to her Fugees family.
Oh NO!!!! Did you guys see "Family Guy" last night! They killed Brian!! WHAT!?!?! I know horrible. So Brian was hit by a car and Stewie tried to go back in time to save him but it didn't work and Brian passed away. Brian was replaced by a new dog, Vinnie -- voiced by "Sopranos" star Tony Sirico. Hopefully Brian will come back but right now it's unclear if that will happen!! R.I.P Brian!
