Ella Mai was all smiles as she accepted the award for “Coca-Cola Viewers’ Choice Award” at the BET Awards.
On Sunday (June 23), the singer’s fans helped her get the viewer’s choice award for her self-titled album. Mai was sure to thank them while looking back on her journey from her hometown of London. She also dropped a special message to her haters. “Thank you so much. I’m a little ol’ girl from London, England, you know, thank you so so much,” she said. “This is proof that you let the music do the talking.”
The show, hosted by Regina Hall, has included some of the best acts in hip-hop, R&B, and gospel. Mary J. Blige and Tyler Perry were also given touching tributes by Rihanna and Taraji P. Henson.
