Superstars BEYONCE KNOWLES and JENNIFER HUDSON have walked away with the top music honours at the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Image Awards in Los Angeles.
Knowles kicked off the 40th annual ceremony on Thursday (12Feb09) with a rousing performance of her new track, Halo, before picking up the award for Outstanding Female Artist.

Accepting the statuette, the Spotlight singer, who also walked away with the Best Album nod, said, "This is where we come from. So it's always an honour to come home and feel welcome and to feel the love. I really cherish this and appreciate it."
Jamie Foxx beat off competition from troubled singer Chris Brown to land the nod for Outstanding Male Artist at the event, which was hosted by Halle Berry and Tyler Perry.
In the movie categories, Will Smith and Rosario Dawson were named Outstanding Actor and Actress, respectively, for their turns in Seven Pounds.
Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson won Supporting Actress for her role in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Columbus Short earned the Supporting Actor nod for Cadillac Records.
