Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams

Kelly Rowland glowed in an orange gown while catching up with her fellow Destiny’s Child diva Michelle Williams at the 3rd annual ESSENCE Black Women in Music event held during Grammy Week. The “Motivation” singer and music industry veteran Sylvia Rhone were honored as movers and shakers.

MC Lyte played DJ and Kelly hit the stage, performing her smash single “Motivation” and reuniting with Eve for their 2007 collaboration “Like This.” Kelly, who is nominated at this weekend’s Grammys, was presented with a platinum plaque by “Motivation” hitmaker Rico Love.

Other attendees included LeToya Luckett, Ne-Yo, Dawn Richard, Melody Thornton, and Melanie Amaro.

    It looks as if Michelle has really aged. I don’t know if it’s her makeup artist or what, but I’ve been noticing it more lately with her past few appearances. It’s good to see them both together though. And Eve, can we get that album anytime soon!!??

    @marcus, Oh stfu this is about KELENDRIA ROWLAND. Beyoncé is no where mentioned. Have several \_

    Anyways, Kelly looks amazing. I love that dress on her. Makes her look like an artist that’s been in the game for 15 years. Michelle looks like a man o_O the dress is cool but that face…..

    it’s really great that Kelly was hononered, and that even the pressed Latoya Luckett showed up -girl betta standup becuz Kelly is a ride or die chick, who knows she was second to Beyonce and fullfilled her position to “the rare jewel” that is Beyonce. But Kelly is a bedazzler too, and Michelle is stepping up her game, it’s just that the makeup failed making her nose seem thinner and her neck look mannish. Michelle is a stunning and beautiful actress in What YOur Husband Doesnt Know.

    Radiant, absolutely beautiful ! Best song by Kelly Rowland is “Unity” ~ an amazing ballad that gets a ton of airplay in Australia and the UK ! Wish the U.S. would embrace this incredible track.
