Justin Timberlake went back to his roots when he made an appearance at the 2014 Radio Disney Music Awards on April 26. The singer accepted an award via satellite from Paris, France, and then treated the crowd to a beat box version of Sly and the Family Stone’s “Thank You!”
Justin Timberlake’s Radio Disney Music Awards Performance
This is a great example of someone who has not forgotten where they came from.
On April 26, Justin was busy in Paris, France as part of his “20/20 Experience World Tour” — but he still made time to appear at the 2014 Radio Disney Music Awards in Los Angeles, California via satellite.
During the show, Justin was presented with the “He’s The One – Best Male Artist” award!
Thanking his fans and Radio Disney, Justin showcases his a cappella vocal chops and the beat-boxing skills of his band, The Tennessee Kids, all to the classic song “Thank You for Letting Me Be Myself, Again” by Sly and the Family Stone.
Executive Producer Michael Levitt, the creative force behind the Radio Disney Music Awards telecast, worked quickly with their legal team to clear the fun version of the song in time for it to air during the broadcast on Sunday, April 27 @ 8pm ET.
Awesome, Justin! Thank YOU for being such a great performer!
