Black Hollywood Live 5 Highlights: Saving Ourselves
Life has changed drastically for many people around the world since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. BET premiered the “Saving OurSelves COVID-19” special to give hope and uplift the spirits of the many African-Americans around the world. All of the performances and messages on Wednesday night were inspirational, full of soul, and brought a sense of togetherness within the African-American community. If you weren’t able to watch, we’ve got you covered, here are 5 highlights from the special.
Before Atlanta’s mayor, Keisha Lance Bottoms, introduced Ludacris and Jermaine’s performance, she had a message of her own. She wanted to educate and reassure residents that she is doing everything in her power to keep the city safe. With reassurance and hope on the viewers’ side, Ludacris and Jermaine Dupri performed a classic song, “Welcome to Atlanta”! Witnessing the two legendary artists perform, made it close to impossible to not want to rap along and visit Atlanta once the coronavirus pandemic is over.
There’s no such thing as too many battles! Ciara and Tiffany Haddish had a friendly dance battle showing off the dance moves they’ve been waiting to show the world! Ciara ended up taking the ‘W’ and not to mention she is still pregnant! Haddish has them next time!
Kirk Franklin, Fantasia, Tyrese, Kelly Price, Le’Andria Johnson, Melvin Crispell III, Jonathan McReynolds, Myron Butler, Melodie Nicole, DeeDee, Anthony Evans, Jada Arnell, and Brittanny Anderson all performed the hit gospel song “Smile”.
Speaking of a moving performance, artist Buju Banton performed “All Will Be Fine”. The song was very inspirational and it’s safe to say viewers felt the love from his voice to the viewer’s hearts. Next time you’re feeling defeated, sad, or even frustrated make sure to listen to this tune.
Regina Hall’s outfit is a depiction of how we are all probably dressing when going outside of our homes. She said she wore her black ski mask because she wasn’t glammed up, which many of us can relate to since we’ve been wearing quarantine outfits for a month now!
Saving OurSelves COVID-19 BET was able to raise over 10 million dollars for people in need during this international world crisis.
