Concrete Loop was invited to the 6th Annual Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon this past Oscar weekend in Los Angeles, California. The Lincoln sponsored event has been a highlight of the Oscar weekend since 2008 and this year was no different.
During the high profile event, the cast of the cult favorite show, ‘Girlfriends’ came together to honor show creator Mara Brock-Akil with her Essence ‘Visionary’ award. Actresses Tracee Ellis Ross, Persia White, Golden Brooks and Jill Marie Jones even sung a little bit of the ‘Girlfriends’ intro, which you can view above via our exclusive video below.
As most of you know, ‘Girlfriends’ premiered on UPN back in 2000 and stayed there until 2006. The show then jumped over to The CW, once UPN was no longer in existence. After 8 years, it was abruptly canceled by The CW and aired its final episode on February 11th 2008. Many fans were upset because we were left hanging without a final episode. If you’re a fan of the show, you will definitely appreciate what is said in this video.
