Charlie Wilson is on a roll. BET honored the legendary singer yesterday and they did it with class. Making it not feel like a send-off. It was a celebration of Wilson’s continuing vigor. Stevie Wonder, Jamie Foxx, Pharrell, Snoop Dogg and India.Arie were all a part of the tribute to 60-year-old Wilson, who earned the lifetime achievement award.
Justin Timberlake presented uncle Charlie with his award quoting:
“Charlie Wilson is soul music. His impact colors the work of many artists, which is basically my nice way of saying I and a lot of other artists have stolen from him”
Wilson’s lively stage presence was the arguably the night’s top moment, though others were on fire.
Peep the tribute…
