The Black Girls Rock! annual awards show broadcast this past Sunday on BET was phenomenal not only for its stellar list of honorees, but also for its incredible performances.
Patti LaBelle received a statuette from the organization — which mentors young women of color — for her decades of accomplishments as a singer, author and more. She also brought down the house with a memorable rendition of her seminal hit, “You Are My Friend,” which brought the audience of hundreds to their feet at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. (The show that aired on November 3 was taped in front of an excited live audience on October 26.)
