If there’s one female artists whose music we hear on a weekly basis in nightclubs, bars and lounges all across the nation, it has to be Beyonce. Not only is she an amazing singer and performer, but now she can also be considered the Woman of the Year in 2009 after she won the award during Billboard’s annual Women In Music luncheon held at New York’s Pierre Hotel. The sexy and sultry singer didn’t have a scroll ready when it came to her acceptance speech, she just kept it simple.
“I can’t believe all of the things I’ve been blessed to do this year, and I know it would not be possible without my family,” she said. “I’m the luckiest young woman in the world to have my parents and that connection and genuine love and people that tell me when I’ve wrong and people that always support me and love me unconditionally.”
