BET Awards 2014: August Alsina Wins Best New Artist

Hard work really does pay off!

Rising sensation August Alsina was crowned Best New Artist at the 2014 BET Awards.

Taking the stage, the emotional New Orleans R&B crooner said, “I told myself if and when I got up here, I wouldn’t cry,” adding, “I always wondered what this moment right here would feel like.”

After thanking his team and supporters, the “I Luv This” hit-maker wrapped his speech with, “All I do is grind and pray.”

Congrats August!
