Filled with excitement for this day to finally be here was an experience I will never forget. While driving in the crazy streets of New York City filled with yellow cabs to cross the state lines of New York from the Holland tunnel to Newark, New Jersey Black Girls Rock couldn’t come any quicker. After finally arriving at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, the sun was shining  beautifully on the building. The signs for the events became more surreal, not only for me but for all the fans that began gathering to enter the NJPAC for the Black Girls Rock taping.

Once It was time to go through the press check-in the comradery of the press and publicist were extremely refreshing because, the atmosphere was filled with positivity and kindness which made my welcoming process and set up for juicy highlights very enjoyable. After setting up, the time finally came to see all the beautiful ladies and gent celebs.  These beautiful and extinguished celebrities walked the carpet not only demanding the attention that they deserve for their philanthropy work  but also brought an energy of love, appreciation, inspiration and wisdom to share to the world via the press.
Now of course, I know you want me to get to the juicy part! The celebs that rocked the carpet to the fullest was first and importantly the honorees of the evening which were: Gladys Knight ( Living Legend Honoree), Rihanna ( Rock Star Honoree), Shonda Rhimes ( Shot Caller Honoree),  The Walking Dead & Eclipsed playwright actress Danai  Gurira ( Star Power Honoree), award winning actress and activist  Amandla Stenberg ( Young, Black and Gifted honoree), The Black Lives Matter Founders Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi,  Teyonah Parris, Vicky Jeudy, Cicely Tyson,  Dionne Warwick, Cissy Houston, Monica, Hosea Chanchez , Micheal Williams and so many others !!!!!! So click above and check out my full red carpet highlights and see what they had to say about this years Black Girls Rock!

Last but not least, always remember as an African American woman life will always throws curve balls at you , but if you continue to stay on the path that God has blessed you with and continuously remind yourself why you ROCK, life will continue to bring unlimited joy, love and happiness .  My motto in life is remember to be you, love yourself endlessly and share the love with your fellow sisters. #Blackgirlsrock!!!  #Blackgirlmagic!!!
