Kelly Rowland stole the spotlight at the 3rd annual Essence Black Women in Music event on Wednesday February 8th in LA.

On top of being honored for her achievements in music, Rowland also put on a dope performance with the help of a few surprise guests.

Rowland sang a medley of her hits including Destiny’s Child favorites like ‘Survivor’ and ‘Independent Woman,’ plus her 2011 chart-topper ‘Motivation.’

Eve made a surprise appearance and joined Kelly onstage for a rendition of ‘Like This.’

Rico Love was on hand to present Rowland an official plaque for selling a million copies of her single ‘Motivation.’ She also received a beautiful glass-like trophy in her honor as well. “To all women out there, God bless you,” said Rowland. “I couldn’t have done this without you.”

Among the celebrities in attendance included fellow DC member Michelle Williams, Ne-Yo and ‘X Factor‘ judge L.A. Reid and Season 1 winner Melanie Amaro.
