Beyoncé Knowles-Carter was honoured by Former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama has honoured with the Humanitarian Award at the 2020 BET Awards which virtually held on Sunday as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Michelle Obama noted that Beyoncé’s talent is matched by her philanthropy, she said;

Ever since she was a little girl in Houston, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter has been lighting up stages and gracing the world with her talent, with her generosity of spirit, and with her love for her community. 

You can see it in everything she does, from her music that gives voice to Black joy and Black pain, to her activism that demands justice for Black lives.

And no matter how big the stages get, I know my girl is not satisfied unless she’s sharing all that shine she has with the next generation.

Beyonce was recognized for her tremendous charitable efforts over the years, especially for her work with BeyGood, a charity initiative which aims to empower young women, and has sponsored several initiatives since 2019. In addition, she has partnered with UNICEF to create “BeyGood 4 Burundi,” a clean water initiative in East Africa.

Beyonce also launched the #IDIDMYPART initiative, along with her mother Tina Knowles, to encourage Houston residents to get tested for coronavirus.

Queen Bey as she is fondly called was nominated for several BET Awards. Watch video of her speech below;
