Queen Latifah Announces Grand Prize Winner of Curvation® Project Confidence Awards

If anyone personifies strength and confidence it's mega-star Queen Latifah. The Grammy-winning musician and Oscar-nominated actress presided over an emotional awards ceremony in New York City recently. After a nationwide search, she announced the grand prize winner of the national Curvation® Project Confidence Awards, given to a local crusader who's building women's confidence and self-esteem in her community:
