Founded by musician Beverly Bond in 2006, BLACK GIRLS ROCK! Inc. is 501(c)3 non-profit youth empowerment and mentoring organization established to promote the arts for young women of color.

The annual Black Girls Rock celebration was recently taped and will in air in April, but I couldn’t wait to share with you the some tidbits from the show. An event with plenty of star power the showstopper was none other than First Lady Michelle Obama. You can read a part of her speech below.

“No matter who you are, no matter where you come from, you are beautiful,” Obama said. “I am so proud of you. My husband, your president, is so proud of you. We have so much hope and dreams for you,” she told the crowd full of black women and girls.- First Lady Michelle Obama
