Black Girls Rock Part 2

 

It’s taken me a few days to finish this but I had a test to study for… anyway. BGR had some incredible performances during the show and I also had to highlight the M.A.D. Girls as well. Youth is such an important part of our nation and we need to invest in them more. These young ladies have put in a lot of hard work and dedication to causes that they believe in and have had a positive impact on their communities. We could all take a page from their book and do our part to give back.

 

PERFORMERS:

Jazmine Sullivan blessed the stage with her sultry and powerful voice. She looked positively radiant. She had women of ALL sizes on the stage showing that we all are beautiful just as we are. Again representation is everything. Lastly those vocal runs took my breath away. Like sis how dare you kill it!!

Brandy performed like this was her last paycheck and the amount depended on this performance. She gave us a different side of her and I loved it.

Andra Day was discovered on YouTube and now is evoking the purest emotion on the stage of Black Girls Rock. The video of women playing in the background added to the importance of the message of her song.

Marsha Ambrosius, Corinne Baily Rae, and Imani Uzuri – edges have been snatched. These ladies did a beautiful job. I can’t even imagine what it was like being in the same room during that performance.

Monica gets better and better the older she gets. I’ve been a fan since “Don’t Take It Personal” was her hit single and I am still here for her today. Her story is a testament of perseverance and not letting your circumstances determine your worth. I just need to know when she’s coming to Houston so I can give her my coins and watch her in concert.

Gladys Knight is everything. What an honor it is to live in a day and age where we can witness legends like her perform. If I am ever blessed with the opportunity to see her in concert (or just to see her in passing) I am taking it. She did an amazing job and looked fabulous!

Lauryn Hill is one of the greatest musicians of our time.

 

MAD Girls that Rock!

Maya Penn (M.A.D. Girls) – this young lady let us all know that age has nothing to do with making a difference across the world. “Any dream no matter how big or impossible it seems, you can make it come to life if you just take that first step.”

Marley Dias (M.A.D. Girls) – if you don’t see representation, create it! Not only has she show that young black girls love to read and are educated, but she’s become an activist in her own right.  “It’s important for girls to read these books because when they see a character they can relate to, it’s helps them connect and not feel alone.” “I’ve always taught to never give up if it’s something that you’re passionate about”

Halie Thomas (M.A.D. Girls) – this young entrepreneur literally saved her father’s life with her passion for a healthier lifestyle. She not only changed the way her family eats, but has a program that reaches te underprivileged communities around her. “A little bit of love can go a long way to inspire your community to start cooking more.” “A M.A.D. girl is someone who is passionate, hopeful for the future and wants to make a difference.
