Janet Jackson has been in the game for well over 20 years & has deserved the title of icon after being such a powerful & dynamic performer. Last month she received the Icon Award at the Billboard Music Awards where she delivered a stunning live performance of some of her many hit records. Last night Janet’s winning streak continued as she was honored once again at the 2018 Radio Disney Awards with the Impact Awards.
Janet was presented with the award by two of her biggest fans Raven-Symoné & Normani. Both of the stars in their own right gushed over their love for the famed Jackson, before excepting the awards to a standing ovation.
“It’s beautiful and its humbling to be recognized as someone who’s had a positive impact, but if I’ve been fortunate enough to impact others, it’s only because I myself have been greatly impacted by positive people in my life.”
Janet also gave thanks to her family & acknowledged her father Joe Jackson who recently was admitted into the hospital for terminal cancer.
“My mother nourished me with the most extravagant love imaginable,” she said. “My incredible father drove me to be the best I can. My siblings set an incredibly high standard, a high bar for artistic excellence.”
