Black Girls Rock Janelle Monae Delivered A Powerful Speech

Janelle Monae the new Covergirl model dazzled in her signature style black tuxedo

Black Girls Rock aired last night and I must say it was so uplifting to see so many powerful, beautiful, black women and men on stage showing off their unique sheer brilliance. There were many highlights and speeches that just touched my heart.

All of the performances were phenomenal especially Missy Elliot’s. It’s been a while since I’ve seen her on stage and she rocks it every single time.

This was the first time Black Girls Rock extended the spotlight to the brothers. The first man to hit the stage was Idris Elba and then came the screams, the cherry on the icing for the triple threat……Eric Benet, Anthony Hamilton, and Luke James, who hit the stage delivering an outstanding performance.

The most memorable moment was the new face of Covergirl, Janelle Monae who was awarded the Young Black & Gifted Award and her speech, check it out below along with a few highlights. of the show…..Njoy

BET PRESENTED BLACK GIRLS ROCK 2011

 BEVERLY BOND THE FOUNDER OF BLACK GIRLS ROCK LOOKS STUNNING IN HER BLACK DRESS

BET aired Black Girls Rock last night and it was awesome. To see so many intelligent strong beautiful black ladies and young ladies in the room was phenomonal. BET has been putting out some real good programs lately but this one took the cake. The show was so inspiring to say the least. To see positivity at this level was refreshing. The accomplishments of the younger ladies was just a good image to our young black sistas, keeping them encouraged and focused.

To give back to someone less fortunate is the best feeling in the world. We all know how to receive but to give is an area that can always use improvement. To teach our young ladies that they are beautiful inside and out, to encourage them, and to instill in them that they are smart and will grow up to make a difference is important and can not be stressed enough.

Black Girls Rock performances and speeches were astounding and uplifting. The ladies did a wonderful job. Jill Scott spoken word knocked me out and then she topped it with” Hate On Me“, I was star struck.  Mary J Blige performance put the cherry on top, she is another performer I’ve never missed in Philly or Jersey. Melonie Fiona, Estelle and Eryka Badu were fantastic. They even had Elle Varner a stunning new artist that performed  her song titled ” I Only Wanna Give It To You” had me up on my feet doing my infamous two step. Beverly Bond I want to thank you for giving our young people a positive image of self to reflect on and also the inspiriational spiral effect. The teens who were at my house enjoyed the program and started thinking of ways they can help others, the brainstormers are going to do their first toy drive cudos. If you missed the show you can watch it HERE IN IT’S ENTIRETY and if you want to contribute to our youth DONATE HERE. …… NJOY THE PICS AND THE VIDEO
