Each year the event hosted by Mitituti, LLC invite women in the Ethiopian/Eritrean-American community to take part. The mission of the contest has always been to bring together a community and appreciate beauty and talent of one's country. This year saw the show open up with a performance by R'n'B singer Zewdy, hailed by some as the new Beyonce, and featured Ethio-Jazz from Feedal Band and DJ Phatsu.
