Last month in New Orleans, some of the biggest names in music, television and the arts joined top executives at the McDonald’s 365 Black Awards. #TeamBeautiful was on the scene to catch up with the stars and hear all about what they’re loving right now.

The stars gave us a variety of answers. Actress Amber Riley revealed that she is loving where her career is, while Pastor Marvin Sapp revealed that he is loving how our communities are coming together in these difficult, racially charged times. Honoree Ava DuVernay, whose work on the film Selma was celebrated, said she was proud of what amazing things she was seeing in the Black community.

The event was hosted by E! News‘ Terrence J and Broadway star Keke Palmer and featured performances from B.o.B, Avery Sunshine and featured a tribute to Pastor Sapp from Smokie Norful, Sevyn Streeter and Shanice Wilson.

Be sure to follow the 365 Awards at @365Black and #365BlackAwards.
