The televised primetime special celebrates its fifth year honoring the triumphs of inspirational African-American women who are trailblazers in the areas of art, philanthropy, sports, and community service. This year, the New Jersey Performing Arts Center located in downtown Newark, NJ, welcomes back “BLACK GIRLS ROCK!™” for a second year. Tune in to watch “BLACK GIRLS ROCK!™” on Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015 at 7 pm/ET.
“I am so excited to share the stage again with my good friend, Regina, to recognize incredible Black women. Powerhouses Debra Lee, CEO and Chairman of BET Networks and Beverly Bond, CEO of ‘Black Girls Rock! ™’ are true examples of Black Girls who Rock. I am proud to once again be part of such a wonderful night celebrating the beauty, the talents and accomplishments of black women – it will be a show to remember,” says Ross.
“It’s wonderful to be back co-hosting ‘BLACK GIRLS ROCK! ™’ with my dear friend Tracee and working alongside all my friends at BET and BGR. I am looking forward to a heartwarming, electrifying, star-studded evening, with lots of surprises sprinkled throughout the show. It’s always a rewarding experience for me and the fans,” elaborates King.
“BLACK GIRLS ROCK!™” nationally broadcasted its televised debut on BET in 2010. Going into its fifth year on TV, the dynamic award show continues to represent a revolutionary landmark in media, diverging from traditional award shows by honoring powerful women through didactic, entertaining, and inspiring content. “BLACK GIRLS ROCK!™” will air on BET Networks this year for the first time since 2013 and will premiere on BET in the UK on Thursday, April 9, 2015 at 9pm BST (check local listings).
