Coco Jones got emotional as she accepted the award for Best New Artist at the 2023 BET Awards held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles earlier today.

The emotional starlet took to the stage while rocking a stunning two piece ensemble and curly hair to accept the award. While on stage, Jones gave a heartfelt acceptance speech while fighting back tears.  ‘I am so happy – oh, thank you, Jesus,’ the 25-year-old singer said, wiping away tears, as she accepted the award. ‘It has been a long journey,’ she continued. ‘Thank you, God, for rocking with me the whole time. Thank you to my culture, who has stood beside me, raised together, been a really long journey, thank you to my team, thank you for taking a chance on me.’
