Over a million people tuned into the 47th annual NAACP Image Awards last Friday and lots more were buzzing about the event on social media.
According to a TV One ratings report obtained by EEW Magazine, the program became the #1 social trend.
“TV One is dedicated to recognizing the best of the Black community,” said Brad Siegel, President of TV One. “The success of last Friday proves we are evolving with our viewers. We are determined to defy expectations by bringing audiences the most engaging Black entertainment experience.”
Siegel continued, “We will continue to raise the bar with our programming and multi-platform initiatives to reach this valuable viewer anytime and anywhere.”
The NAACP Image Awards celebrates the accomplishments of people of color in the fields of television, music, literature and film and also honors individuals or groups who promote social justice through creative endeavors.
The multi-cultural show is one of the most respected events of its kind and is well attended by many of the top names in the entertainment industry.
One of the moments that got members of the faith community talking was gospel singer Tina Cambpell’s Outstanding Album win for her debut solo effort, It’s Personal.
“I never knew that when my life was falling apart a couple of years ago on my reality show that God would use those challenges to birth a body of work that you all would be recognizing today,” the exuberant singer said during her emotional acceptance speech.
