Hollywood was filled with powerful African Americans in the entertainment industry on Wednesday night as they all gathered to celebrate Ebony magazine’s annual Power 100 Gala.
The publication hosted it’s annual event that salutes the achievements of the most influential and powerful African Americans in the country. HipHollywood was on the red carpet where we caught up with the evenings nominees, including Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Bishop T.D. Jakes.
“If there was a moment that I could turn to my grandfather, this would be the one event in Hollywood I would ever bring him to. It would mean so much to him,” Frazier told us.
“To use whatever influence you have to project a message that helps to change the lives of people is what I’ve committed my life to. And to be acknowledged on this forum is very gratifying,” Bishop explained.
One of the night’s biggest honors, Quincy Jones, who took home the achievement award. Several musicians, including Earth, Wind & Fire’s Verdine White and Kem showed up just to pay tribute to the icon. “My music and my life wouldn’t be what it is without the impact he has had in the industry,” Kem said.
