The third annual Black Music Honors which will be held in Nashville, TN and hosted by Comedian, Television and Radio Personality Rickey Smiley and Singer, Actress LeToya Luckett honors artists and musicians who have influenced and made significant contributions to American music.
The annual two-hour special honorees this year includes Bobby Brown, who will receive the R&B Soul Music Icon Award, BeBe & CeCe Winans, who will be co-honored the Gospel Music Icon Award, Dallas Austin, who will be presented with the Music Innovator Icon Award and Bad Boy’s First Lady of R&B Faith Evans, who will be receiving the Urban Music Icon Award.
“The vision of the Black Music Honors is to recognize the trailblazers in African American music who have paved the way for the artists of today. Many of these artists have never received their much-deserved recognition,” said Don Jackson, founder and CEO of Central City Productions.
The show is set to air on broadcast syndication on Sept. 8 - 30, 2018.
Ticket proceeds will benefit the 2019 opening of the National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM) in Nashville. NMAAM’s mission is to educate the world, preserve the legacy, and celebrate the central role African Americans play in creating the American soundtrack.
