Erykah Badu

Dubbed the queen of neo-soul, Erykah Badu graced the stage with her effortless cool at the 2011’s Black Girls Rock! awards show. The recording artist and actress has won more than a dozen awards and received at least 57 nominations, but it is her activism and her willingness to unapologetically engage with social concerns and struggles within the African-American community that have made her a contemporary icon.
