They’re both set to drop brand new albums this year, and no doubt hope to score ‘career bests’ with them.
So, as to spread the word on their respective efforts, Mariah Carey and Jennifer Hudson have signed up to perform at this year’s ‘BET Honours’, created to celebrate the achievements of distinguished African-Americans!
Full story below…
Premiering on February 24th, this year’s ceremony will honour contributions made by Aretha Franklin, Berry Gordy, American Express chairman/CEO Ken Chenault, visual artist Carrie Mae Weems and Hip-Hop veteran Ice Cube.
Joining Hudson and Carey as performers are Tamar Braxton, Wayne Brady and Smokey Robinson, while ‘Own It‘ performer Mack Wilds will serve as one of the night’s hosts, fulfilling his duties when the show tapes on February 8th!
Sure to reignite interest in Carey’s forthcoming album and generate fresh attention for Hudson’s, ticket sales generated by the show will benefit the Women Veterans Interactive (WVI), an organisation that provides housing options and support for veterans and those closest to them.
