After the success of its inaugural showing with soulstresses Kelly Price, Fantasia, Marsha Ambrosius,and more, BET readied round 2 of ‘Black Girls Rock’ – a showcase (of) and ode to today’s brightest African American women in various disciplines. And with a bevy of big names joining this year’s line-up (including Mary J. Blige, Jill Scott, and Erykah Badu), the star-studded affair may have even outdone its predecessor.
Though the Tracee Ellis Ross/Regina King – hosted event took place at Paradise Theater in NYC on October 15th, it aired tonight on BET. See performances below:
