Charlie Wilson sure knows how to throw a party!
The iconic R&B singer was presented by Mr. Suit & Tie himself, Justin Timberlake, with the Cadillac Lifetime Achievement Award, and in honor of his AH-mazing achievements in the R&B and Hip-Hop music industry, some inCREDible artists performed his greatest hits on stage.
Just a few of Charlie's friends brought down the BET Awards house, including Jamie Foxx singing Yearning For Your Love by Charlie's Gap Band, India.Arie doing a rendition of There Goes My Baby, and the legendary Stevie Wonder with Gap Band's Burn Rubber on Me (Why You Wanna Hurt Me).
But, it didn't end there! After a sweet (and a bit long) speech, JT convinced Mr. Wilson to sing one of his songs, You Are, which he pulled off flawlessly. BUT THEN, THAT'S WHEN THE VENUE EXPLODED!
It was 30 minutes of pure music synergy!!! Most def the biggest treat of the night!
Well played, Uncle Charlie! Well played indeed!
Ch-ch-check out the FULL Charlie Wilson Experience (above)!!!!!
