BET Awards 2020: Beyonce To Receive Humanitarian Honor

Published: Thursday 25th Jun 2020 by Sam

Beyonce has long used her platform to champion causes for social change and will be honored for her efforts at this Sunday’s 20th annual BET Awards.

Full story below…

In an announcement made moments ago, BET confirmed that Queen Bey (who is nominated five times) will be presented with the prestigious Humanitarian Award. 

Her status as a philanthropist, who has created several initiatives to give back to the world at large, is touted as one of many reasons for the much deserved salute.

Per the statement:

Beyoncé established “Formation Scholars,” in 2017,  to encourage and support young women who are unafraid to think outside the box and are bold, creative, conscious and confident. The scholarship awarded  students from four colleges.  That year, she partnered with UNICEF to create ‘BeyGood4Burundi.’ This multi-year partnership was established to bring safe water and sanitation to the small, landlocked East African country of Burundi. In 2018 she created the Homecoming Scholars Award Program, following her historic performance at Coachella,  which benefited students at eight HBCU colleges and universities.

It continued:

In response to the pandemic, Beyoncé teamed up with her mother, Ms. Tina Knowles Lawson, for the #IDIDMYPART mobile testing initiative to encourage residents in Houston in Black and brown communities, disproportionately affected by COVID-19, to know their status. She has also donated to support organizations on the ground helping to meet basic health and mental needs in vulnerable communities, affected by the crisis. For Juneteenth, following the release of her latest song, “Black Parade,” Beyoncé announced the creation of BeyGOOD’s Black Business Fund, administered by the National Urban League, to support Black-owned small businesses.

************

The news came paired with confirmation that Sunday’s show, which will also air on CBS for the first time, will pay tribute to Kobe Bryant and Little Richard. 

Powering on despite the pandemic, the Amanda Seales hosted special (the format of which will be revealed on-air) boasts performances from the likes of Megan Thee Stallion, Alicia Keys, Usher, Chloe x Halle, Roddy Ricch, Jennifer Hudson, DaBaby, and more.

Appearances include Naomi Campbell, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael B. Jordan, Lizzo, Lena Waithe, Maxine Waters, Billy Porter, Courtney B. Vance, Debbie Allen, Deon Cole, LaTanya Richardson Jackson, La La Anthony, Misty Copeland, Omari Hardwick, Quavo, Quincy Jones, Rapsody, Regina Hall, Saweetie, Sterling K. Brown, Viola Davis, and Whoopi Goldberg.

The 2020 BET Awards airs Sunday, June 28th, on BET and CBS.

      • Re June 26, 2020

        Funny as hell. True though

  3. Clarks0o0ñ June 25, 2020

    So her humanitarian efforts started in 2017?
    For a woman who has been in show business since 1997 that’s very sad and embarrassing

    It took her how many years to acknowledge her gay fan base?

    It took her how many years to start speaking up on black issues?

    This is sad and pathetic.

    • tyty June 25, 2020

      You’re a self hating gay with severe mental health issues and a identity crisis..that you don’t acknowledge but you think you’re qualified to pass judgment? Considering you love researching and writing dossiers on every single artist you claim to dislike you would know she has been doing philanthropy work well before 2017. Considering you have such a strong opinion on black matters in America despite not even living there you ain’t heard of her behind the scenes work many grass root organisations praise her for, the difference being they explicitly state she doesn’t like publicising what she does. The question we are all waiting for you to answer is IS THERE ANYONE YOU LIKE? Are you not embarrassed at being the resident miserable grinch on this blog 24/7 do you even sleep to be parched on every post 😂😂🥴

      • Clarks0o0ñ June 25, 2020

      • tyty June 25, 2020

        You’re obsessed with Twitter have you been gifting them with your unique brand of charisma or lack of? You didn’t address anything that was put to you because you knows it’s the truth. In actuality I hit a nerve hence the deflection? Now you’re using Karen as a slur when you’re the number 1 racist bandit on this here blog? Maybe your meds are kicking in 🤪🤪

      Beyonce doesn’t even know she exists despite Camicky trying to get her attention

      Even Blue Ivy hates Camicky . Blue Ivy canceled Camicky before the world did. Flop Singles & Album with a Canceled Tour

      🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      • Clarks0o0ñ June 25, 2020

    • Lol June 25, 2020

      A lot of other people who have donated, been on the front lines and didn’t just write a corny letter.

  7. DT June 25, 2020

    For doing what??

  8. Dc June 25, 2020

    They kiss her ass soo much it’s sad

  9. Nicky June 25, 2020

    Camicky added Seniorita at the last minute when her lead single from Bromance flopped

    The Biggest Leech Award at The Grammys goes to Camicky

  10. Thanos of Titan June 25, 2020

    For what? Give it to Rihanna.

    This is complete garbage. lls

  11. eric June 25, 2020

    When they first started, the award went to people like Muhammad Ali, Denzel Washington, and Harry Belafonte whose humanitarian work spanned years and years. BET changed somewhere along the way.

  12. Pat June 25, 2020

    Awards like this only add to her current downswing. Gp knows there are way more deserving honorees

  13. Karter June 25, 2020

    This woman has donated tens of millions of dollars to various charities including 7 million dollars to build a housing complex for the homeless in Houston and y’all in here mad and pressed that she’s finally getting recognized for it?? Weird.

  14. Only Facts June 25, 2020

  25. Justaskme June 25, 2020

    Anything to keep this lady in the press. She can dance and yodel but, legendary she is not. She produces ballroom bops for the kids. Catchy, trendy but, certainly not legendary darling. She is one single away from a greatest hits collection and vegas residency. Just sayin.

    • Re June 26, 2020

      True story give her all the awards for everything in the world period. So we can be one and done. If her blah fanbase would get out and instead of buying1,000 tickets we could get trump. She has not campaign her fans to register to vote. Her fans need to start registering now and she needs to yell it out to the world to get registered. Now if we can stand in line for a Popeye chicken sandwich that wraps around the stor surly we can get out and vote.

    The kids love a gold wig and a yodel. Beyonce gives 2 f@cks about BET. Im sure she will zoom in because she is “ on tour”. In the middle of a pandemic.
