This spring I had the incredible honor of performing in the Black Girls Rock! award show. Every year, the Black Girls Rock! award show airs on BET and celebrates the achievements and contributions of black women in entertainment, service and business. I was part of their first-ever orchestra, which accompanied Marsha Ambrosius, Corrine Bailey Rae and Imani Uzuri in a collaborative performance. This was an unforgettable and empowering night, full of incredible energy and amazing women. To share space with black heroines like Gladys Knight, Shonda Rhimes, Tracee Ellis Ross, Rihanna, and soo many more… felt magical. I’ll never forget this night and the close musical colleagues I shared it with.
