There is only one Erykah Badu and during ESSENCE’s Black Women in Music event Thursday night, she proved once again why she’s one-of-a-kind. 

The event honored Badu and 20 years of Baduizm. Solange took the stage to introduce the singer, who performed songs from her classic debut album. Fans shared videos of Ms. Badu, who performed “Rimshot,” “On & On" and “Other Side Of The Game.”
