What a positve and uplifting way to highlight the accomplishments of black women and girls in every line of work! Co-hosted by Regina King and Tracee Ellis Ross, this event is entirely dedicated to the recognition of black women's accomplishments in entertainment, athletics, business, philanthropy, activism and more. Saturday night at the Paradise Theater beautiful and talented, headlining performers joined together in celebration of this occasion. Erykah Badu opened BGR 2011 with "Apple Tree", Jill scott performed "Hate On Me" to a standing audience and Mary J. Blige sang her classic jam "My Life" to perfection.
