Sy Smith Shows Us The Way To Honor A Legend

Count the soulful Sy Smith among the many artists directly affected by Michael Jackson's sudden departure. Everyone has their own way to deal. Some get creative with it. Others just need to talk it out. During a performance over the weekend, Sy recounted her MJJ experience while doing a cover of The Jacksons' "Let Me Show You The Way to Go," sharing with the audience that she'd just met Michael last month while auditioning to be a backup singer during the London summer shows. Her tribute is genuine, funny, and definitely necessary. Enjoy.

  1. That performance was on point!

  2. *CRY CRY CRY*
    f***ing with my emotions.
    Sy Smith.... argh.

  3. It was quite a touching story - an experience she'll never forget I'm sure. My video of this is janky as I don't know what because I practically got up and hand danced WHILE recording.
    The whole show was on point. Yahzarah's cover of Billie Jean knocked me off my feet. Conya Doss did MJ proud on "I Can't Help It." Then all four soul sistas joined together for Never Can Say Goodbye. All available for viewing on You Tube of course 🙂
    THIS is how you do it BET!
    *logs off*

  4. As someone who was in attendance at this show, I can attest that this was one of the most moving moments of the night. Only Sy's sense of humor kept everyone in the house from bawling. Well done, Sy.

  5. I'm diggin this. Like really!

  6. BET: Take notes. Touching, funny, beautiful, in a word... REAL. Now, THAT, my friends, is a tribute.

  7. YES!!! I was there and this was amazing. So touching. I know she will never ever forget that. These sistas were amazing, especially when they sang "Never Can Say Goodbye
