    Dear BET, I'm soooo sick of Yolanda Adams doing EVERY tribute known to Black man. There are PLENTY of other talented gospel artists who could be a refreshing face or different take on these tributes. BET is so lazy sometimes. And next time don't get Stephanie Mills to do a tribute to someone like Aretha. Stephanie is not a powerhouse singer and she sounded terrible at best.

    HOW I'm just seeing this for the first time I don't know.😮
    HOW I only knew about Stephanie Mills and none of these other EXTRAORDINARY TALENTS I don't know.😍
    HOW my edges are (kind of) still intact I'll NEVER know. 😂
    MY WIG left the building the second Ledisi opened her mouth and up to now... it's location... I don't know.🤔
    But what I DO know... Is I'm a very repetitive person... And I've just found the video I shall be repeating till I die... And will probably have played at my funeral 😂😂😂 Because this is just perfection!!!
