Had a priceless evening with Hollywood Confidential on Monday night at the Saban Theatre. The phenomenal, talented, iconic Angela Bassett graced the stage and dropped some gems and inspired us all to never lose our fire and to go after our dreams. Angela Bassett was also given the Icon Award by Essence at the end of the night. So, yes priceless moments.
Thank you so much to Hollywood Confidential and creator Steve Jones for allowing us to be in the room to hear from a legend and a master at the game.
