“This Is Going To Be An Exciting Quality Entertainment Packed Show!” Cindy Herron (En Vogue), Gleamingly Expressed During A Recent Press Conference. “Its Very Important For Me That We Come Together And Celebrate Black Music This Year. There Are So Many Things That Are Dividing People, Not Only In America But Around The World, So For Us To Have A Moment To Drift Away From Those Things And Have Something Positive To Focus On As A Community, Is A Proud Moment” She Continued.

“There Is No Shortage Of Talent In This Award Show And I Am Looking Forward To All Of The Performances From The Amazing Collection Of Artists” Bishop Marvin Sapp Excitingly Told Us. “Being Able To Celebrate People While They Are Still Alive Is So Important, Not Doing Tributes After They Have Transitioned” He Continued With Controlled Emotion In His Voice.
