Last night BET aired their annual, Black Girls Rock, celebration honoring women of color for their dedication and achievements. This year’s event was hosted by actresses, Regina King, and Tracee Ellis Ross, with performances by Ciara, Missy Elliott, Keyshia Cole, Brandy, Alicia Keys, India Arie, SWV, Eric Benet, and Anthony Hamilton. The ladies definitely showed up and showed out and the men did their thing with a soulful performance of their own.
Among this year’s honorees were Dionne Warwick, who was given the Living Legend Award, Alicia Keys (Rock Star Award), and Janelle Monáe who gave a powerful and uplifting speech as she accepted the Young, Gifted, & Black Award.
