A Ball like no other. THE LEGENDS BALL

Oprah Winfrey truly is a force of nature, I remember watching the footage of this three day extravaganza and feeling privileged just to see something like this on television. So many women who had somehow been forgotten by most for their amazing efforts in film, music and television were given the day in the sun. In the footage below you will see certified superstars like Alicia Keys being in awe of the company she was in, ONLY Oprah can do this!

For all you music lovers the final video is a true gem, an impromptu soul/gospel session from countless living legends, it is almost too good to be true. I could swear I saw a certain Mr Obama busting some moves on the dance floor…..

Oprah Winfrey’s Legends Ball was a three-day celebration held by Oprah Winfrey honoring twenty-five African American women in art, entertainment, and civil rights.

The celebration included a luncheon, white-tie ball, and gospel brunch. On May 22, 2006, a year after the celebration, a one-hour program about the weekend aired on ABC. It included celebrity interviews and behind-the-scenes moments.[1]

The 25 women included Maya Angelou, Shirley Caesar, Diahann Carroll,Elizabeth Catlett, Ruby Dee, Katherine Dunham, Roberta Flack, Aretha Franklin,Nikki Giovanni, Dorothy Height, Lena Horne, Coretta Scott King, Gladys Knight,Patti LaBelle, Toni Morrison, Rosa Parks, Leontyne Price, Della Reese, Diana Ross, Naomi Sims, Tina Turner, Cicely Tyson, Alice Walker, Dionne Warwick, and Nancy Wilson.[1]
