This week the BET Awards announced that Beyoncé will be honored with their Humanitarian Award at Sunday’s 20th annual show. Queen B will receive the award in recognition of her BeyGOOD initiative in which she has established many scholarships as well as philanthropic foundations.

Beyoncé partnered up with her mother, Tina Knowles Lawson in response to the COVID-19 pandemic for the #IDIDMYPART mobile testing initiative, supporting Houston communities of color that have been disproportionately impacted. Furthering her philanthropy Beyoncé also donated to organizations that are working to meet the physical and mental health needs of those  who are most vulnerable. Adding to the star-studded roster is Lil Wayne who will provide a tribute to late Lakers star Kobe Bryant and a memorial to rock pioneer Little Richard by comedian/singer Wayne Brady.
