In its fourth installment, BLACK GIRLS ROCK! 2013 blew my mind once again.
I covered the pink carpet, for the second year in a row, and was surrounded by a slew of Black women who just (dare I say it)… freaking ROCK!
BLACK GIRLS ROCK! is dedicated to honoring exceptional women of color around the world who serve as an inspiration within our communities.
Patti Labelle (Living Legend Award), Queen Latifah (Rock Star Award), Mara Brock Akil (Shot Caller Award), Venus Williams (Star Power Award), community organizer Ameena Matthews (Community Activist Award), ground-breaking ballet dancer Misty Copeland (Young, Gifted & Black Award), and children’s rights activist Marian Wright Edelman (Social Humanitarian) are the distinguished guests of honor that were celebrated at this year’s BLACK GIRLS ROCK! event.
After spending two hours in the cold interviewing and stargazing all the celebrities on the pink carpet, I was anxious to get inside of the theatre to watch the show. I won’t spoil it for you because it was indeed a marvelous event darlings!
I left New Jersey with a sense of purpose, a fearless attitude and I really thought I could sing thanks to Ms. Patti. Her performance was one for the books. I came home, downloaded a few of her songs and I lip-synced for my life in front of my bathroom mirror!
I will be live tweeting during the show on November 3rd, since it’s the day before my BIRTHDAY! *FIST PUMPS & Cartwheels down your computer screen*
