Brandy has survived the monster known as the music industry for 20 years and continues to survive—no, thrive in the midst of it. From Billboard hits to Grammys and an acting career veteran actors would die for, Brandy has rightfully earned her respect.
In case anyone forgot or perhaps misunderstood the enormity of the accomplishment, True Exclusives put together a video of celebrities singing the praises of the young and talented artist. Not surprisingly “The Game” actress broke down while watching the video, you can also read her response below.

Kelly Rowland: Besides being Brandy the entertainer, you’re an incredible human being and God is so good. You’re here still putting out records, hit records, and I’m so proud of you.
Tika Sumpter: You’ve been in the game for 20 years. I remember listening to “I Want to Be Down” and thinking about how beautiful you are. To have met you and to have you in my life and to know you now, you’re everything that I thought you would be when I used to look at your CD. So anyway, I’m excited to see what else you are gonna do. You’re gonna be the star that you always are.
Maxwell: Brandy you know I’ve loved you forever. I’m one of your biggest fans. When I was a lot older than you, you were a young baby coming into the game but I loved you from day one. Glad to you see you still rocking it and your future is still there and I love you.
I just want to say thank you. I’m remembering everyone…and all I’ve ever tried to do is just be great at being myself and inspire people. I didn’t know what I was doing. I didn’t know if that’s what I was doing. I’m just thankful and I can appreciate it. I can appreciate it all. No matter what is happening [or] is not happening, I can appreciate everything that I’ve experienced. I appreciate everything that everyone is saying, I think that’s what the hard times brings. It brings [being] grateful for what you have and what your purpose is. I never want to lose that ever. I just want to keep striving and keep going and keep trying to reach all my goals and to keep making people feel good with whatever it is that I do. Whether it be a handshake, a smile, a hello, a song, a laugh, whatever it is, I have to stay in touch with that. I can’t live on without that.
