BET, in partnership with Beverly Bond, the creator of Black Girls Rock! announced that the following phenomenal women will be recognized this year for, well, rocking:

Patti Labelle: Living Legend Award

In a news release, Beverly Bond said of this year’s honorees:

“Each of the women, whom we are celebrating this year, epitomize the champion’s spirit as applicable to their respective fields. They are anchored by a fierce commitment to their craft or cause; they have shown the ability to navigate multiple sectors and industries successfully; and they are conscious about the role they play in enriching our society and culture. They absolutely Rock!”

We definitely agree.  Will you be watching Black Girls Rock! 2013?
