The stars shined bright and aligned perfectly during McDonald’s 12th annual 365 Black Awards, which was held at the Ernest Moral Convention Center in New Orleans, LA on July 3, 2015 but recently had its broadcast premiere.
The star-studded evening was dedicated to powerful African-Americans who have made a commitment to uplifting their communities. With hosts Keke Palmer and Terrence Jenkins on board, the night was fueled with top performances by leading acts such as opening act B.O.B, as well as newcomer Andra Day.
Key presenters included Wendy Raquel Robinson, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Yara Shahidi, Common, Marcus Scribner, Yolanda Adams and Dondre Whitfield. CLICK HERE to see a list of this year’s honorees.
