Centric Celebrates the Second Weekend of Black Music Month, June 13-14, with an All-Star Lineup of Barrier Breaking Black Female Artists

Black Music Month powers on at Centric TV with an exciting weekend devoted to some of music’s biggest soul sisters. These bold, barrier-breaking personalities have created an entire genre and electrified audiences worldwide.  Saturday and Sunday, June 13-14, Centric’s favorite female vocalists will hold court and command the stage with Sister Soul Weekend.


From gospel to hip-hop, and everything in between, these powerful female artists have inspired fans to cry, laugh, love – and of course, stand up and fight back. This weekend’s celebration features contemporary artists from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and today. From Tina Turner straight through to Fantasia, the range of musical and personal styles have one thing in common – they are all feminine forces to be reckoned with. Having risen to fame against all odds, these performers are sheer forces of talent, confidence and personal will.
