RIHANNA Gets Standing Ovation For Powerful Speech At NAACP Image Awards
Rihanna delivered a strong and inspiring speech on the importance of world issues being everyone’s issues at the 51st annual NAACP Image Awards.
The singer, actress, and beauty/fashion mogul - who just celebrated her 32nd birthday last February 20 - received the President's Award at the said ceremony for her philanthropic efforts across the globe. "Tonight is not really about me, because the purpose is bigger than me, right?" she said upon accepting her award.
"It’s not bigger than us together, but it’s bigger than me, because my part is a very small part of the work that is being done in this world and the work that is yet to be done," she continued, earning a standing ovation from the crowd.
