AceShowbiz - Beyonce will be saluted for her philanthropy endeavours with the BET Humanitarian Award.
The "Formation" icon is being recognised for her ongoing work in conjunction with her BeyGOOD charity, through which she recently donated millions for coronavirus relief, and helped to set up testing sites in her native Houston, Texas, where her team members have also been distributing personal protective equipment, essential items, hot meals, and grocery vouchers to locals in need.
She also just launched the Black Business Impact Fund, donating proceeds from her surprise single "Black Parade" to support black-owned small businesses in need, while she has additionally been funding scholarships through her Formation Scholars initiative, and providing clean water to the people of Burundi via her BeyGood4Burundi partnership with UNICEF bosses.
Beyonce will be presented with the honour during the virtual 2020 BET Awards, which are set to be televised in the U.S. at 8 P.M. ET on Sunday, June 28, 2020.
