The 34-year-old Make Me Feel songstress made a memorable appearance rocking a black long sleeve top and vibrant orange skirt, which emphasized her trim waist.
The Harriet actress, who was nominated for her supporting role, even paired the striking ensemble with some edgy sliver earrings and a perfectly braided up-do.
‘Oh my goodness, I just feel so thankful to be in a room with so many talented black people,’ the performer said in a video on her Instagram Story.
The singer reposted the videos from the NAACP Image Awards account, while struggling to pinpoint just who she was looking most forward to seeing.
When asked about her nomination she said: ‘I feel thankful, humble and inspired. I feel loved. This is not my first nomination, I think on the film side, maybe, but the NAACP has always supported me.’
