The 14th Annual 2016 State Farm Neighborhood Awards hosted by Steve Harvey was quite the show, Saturday night.
In addition to having the comedian as host, there were live performances from The O’Jays, Erykah Badu, and Maxwell in Las Vegas.
But the most important aspect of the night was celebrating local businesses, religious organizations, community leaders, entrepreneurs and high schools from all over the country who work to uplift their communities.
A couple of the categories included Best Barbecue Place, Best Car Wash Detail Shop, Best School Teacher, and Best Nail Salon which was won by Her Design Studio of Richmond, VA.
The festivities were sponsored by Wells Fargo, McDonald’s, State Farm and Cream of Nature— among others.
Badu performed her hits for the evening but also thanked Harvey for allowing her to sing on stage at his comedy club 25 years ago, when she was the ticket girl at the door.
“It’s in my heart, it’s what I do well,” she said. “And it’s also my therapy. I appreciate you for all of these years, helping me to create me.”
