"SAY It LOUD - I'm Black and I'm Proud" - BET Awards 2009
James Brown recorded that song in 1968. . .and yes, I remember it. And it rang in my head last night.
Wow. . .is all I can say. The energy in the room transcended through the airwaves and I felt it in front of my television set. No matter how many nose jobs he had, Michael Jackson was still OURS (as Jamie Foxx pointed out last night). It was so good to see everybody - black, white, red and yellow come together almost impromptu to pay homage to the late Michael Jackson. I especially liked the duo of Neyo and Jamie Foxx singing "I'll Be There."
