This week, the likes of BET’s Yvonne Orji, Erykah Badu, and Cynthia Erivo made their way to Miami for BET’s Leading Women Defined, a conference centered around women empowerment with a series of business sessions, networking, and community service.
That time I performed karaoke and decided my song of choice would be “Tyrone” by the incomparable @erykahbadu…and the powers that be at #LWDBET invited her to come front and center to watch you channel the essence that is her. Thank GOD I had a secret weapon in @cynthiaerivo who ACTUALLY sang vocals behind the scenes and made me feel like I could go toe to toe with Her Excellency! EPIC AF!! #MicDropMoment #IncenseWasBurned #WhatLifeIsThis #ThisIsAThingThatHappened #LeadingWomenWereDefinedTonight #MiamiWasNeverTheSame

While the event is certainly of learning, the ladies also got the chance to let loose and have fun. Namely, Insecure actress Orji brought the turn up vibes with a karaoke performance of Badu’s “Tyrone.” While she lip synced, Tony Award-winner Cynthia Erivo sang the song by her side
And if you look close enough, you’ll see Badu cheering the ladies on stage on and jamming to her tune equally legendary and soulful tune.
So epic, right?!
