While women are recognized for their roles in entertainment, the arts, humanitarian efforts, sports and community activism, the beauty of BLACK GIRLS ROCK! is the awards are not always driven by celebrity or star power. This is a time that women from all walks of life honor those that stand with them daily building a better life for themselves and their community.
BLACK GIRLS ROCK!, Inc. is a non-profit organization with the mission of improving the self-worth of young women of color by broadening their horizons. The show is a beautiful tribute to their mission and offers the world a different view of black women and the ties that bind.
With performances from artists like Patti LaBelle, Kelly Rowland and Janelle Monae, it is refreshing to see them share the stage with artists coming into their own. One artist we hope to see perform is Alice Smith. With a voice like this, we'll hear her rocking for a while. Here is her version "Fool for You" by Cee-Lo and Melanie Fiona.
