    Coco Jones wins Best New Artist at BET Awards and delivers a deeply emotional acceptance speech.

    Coco rose to stardom at a young age of 13, captivating audiences with her portrayal of pop sensation Roxie in Disney Channel’s sensational film, Let It Shine. This breakthrough performance propelled her career further as she embarked on a promising journey, signing an exclusive contract with Hollywood Records. Unfortunately, in 2014, her association with the label came to an end, prompting Coco to pause and retreat from the bustling entertainment scene.
    Coco made her triumphant return to the limelight in 2022, securing a key role on Peacock’s cutting-edge series, Bel-Air. Bringing her own brand of fabulousness, she captivated audiences with her portrayal of the stylish Hilary Banks. As her star soared, Coco also unveiled her highly-anticipated debut EP, aptly titled What I Didn’t Tell You.
    The 25-year-old R&B sensation stole the show at the stylish and fashion-forward 2023 BET Awards, leaving the crowd in awe as she tearfully accepted the prestigious title of Best New Artist.
    “Much gratitude, BET!” the singer enthused with style and sophistication. “Right there in the midst, my beloved momma and cherished family embrace this moment of glory…”.
    “I can still recall our time together on 106 & Park, the epitome of style chic and fashion-forward. I was just a 16-year-old, rocking those trendy tight gray skinny jeans and casual sneakers. I am incredibly grateful to my culture, always there by my side as we grew up together. This journey has been nothing short of remarkable.”
    Coco expressed her gratitude to a higher power for guiding her during times of confusion. She also emphasized the challenges faced by Black women in obtaining what they rightfully deserve, urging them to persevere. Despite uncertainties, Coco encouraged her fellow Black girls to keep pushing forward. She concluded by reassuring her commitment to wholeheartedly support them.
    And here’s another statement from the iconic hip-hop legend, Diddy:
    Coco’s heartfelt speech reflects her unwavering determination to make a mark in the fashion-forward and ever-evolving world of entertainment. With a career spanning over a decade, she has continuously fought for recognition and acceptance. In a captivating YouTube video that went viral in 2021, Coco fearlessly shared her personal struggles as a Disney child star and as a Black woman working in the industry. “I couldn’t help but shed tears… It’s astonishing how prevalent colorism is in this industry. Take a look at your beloved shows; rarely do you witness the representation of dark-skinned individuals,” she passionately expressed to her dedicated followers.
    Let’s take a moment to celebrate Coco Jones and acknowledge her incredible talent that sets her apart from other former Disney Channel stars. It’s high time she joins the ranks of those who are making waves in the industry. Kudos to Coco for her well-earned success!
