Tracee Ellis Ross, Keyshia Cole, and Regina King
Last night was the 2012 Black Girls Rock! Awards in New York City’s Paradise Theater, and everyone was anyone seemed to have showed up!
The star-studded event brought attention to strong black women and each of their talents within music, acting, fashion, and even some charity work.
The two lovely hosts, Regina King and Trace Ellis Ross, tag teamed it up to make sure it was a memorable night for the females of the audience.
Alicia Keys and Brandy came through and did a beautiful performance, but Ciara stole the show when she brought out Missy Elliot for “1,2 Step”.
Once Missy touched that stage, the enthusiasm of the show seemed to go through the roof!
Other power women that were on the scene included, Meagan Good, Eva Longoria, Janelle Monae, Bridget Kelly, Gabrielle Union and even Taraji P. Henson who received a special award.
Other winners of the night include:
Kerry Washington – Star Power Award
Susan Taylor – Inspiration Award
Alicia Keys – Rock Star Award
Janelle Monae – Young, Gifted and Black Award
Dr. Hawa Abdi and her daughters – Social Humanitarian Award
Dionne Warwick – Living Legend Award
