'Empire' Star Jussie Smollett Delivers Marriage Equality Speech Mid-Performance At BET Awards
Empire star Jussie Smollett hit the stage with co-stars Bryshere Y. Gray and Serayah at the BET Awards on Sunday and performed numbers from the hit FOX series, but it was his speech in support of marriage equality in the middle of "You're So Beautiful" that had us on our feet!
Smollett touched on the Supreme Court ruling as a sign of how far we've come while also noting the recent loss of Black lives, which showcases how far we still need to go.
Check out his speech at 4:25:
We're also loving that Jussie switched to the same-sex "man loves a man" version of "You're So Beautiful" for the last verse!!
Well done, Jussie!!
