Essence’s “Women in Black Music” Awards Ceremony

Thursday Night, February 5, 2015, Chaka Khan, Brandy, and Lianne La Havas were amongst the performers to grace the stage at this year’s annual ESSENCE Black Women in Music ceremony.

The three entertainers joined this year’s honoree, Jill Scott, in celebrating the best and brightest moments in Black music over ESSENCE’s 45-year history. The 6th annual event recognizes the achievements of the generations of Black women singers who have inspired and paved the way.

The ESSENCE Black Women in Music event kicked off Essence’s year-long commemoration of the magazine’s 45th anniversary, where Black women have always—and will continue to—come first.
