The best part of this award function is that the winners are determined on the basis of a public poll. The function was hosted by Jamie Foxx and Tracee Ellis Ross. The former was dressed in a whopping dark brown gown and started the how discussing all the tragic events that happened and tested People’s faith in God. Well! I am an ardent fan of the sEnglish music industry, some of the songs really reach out to my heart. Apparently, I am just listening to one of Coldplay’s best song “ Hymn For the Weekend” remixed by Seeb.
