Lizzo and Epic Records CEO Sylvia Rhone are set to be honored at the 2023 Black Music Action Coalition Gala.
The Black Music Action Coalition will present awards to Lizzo and Rhone at the 2023 BMAC Gala, scheduled for September 21.
Lizzo will receive the BMAC Quincy Jones Humanitarian Award, while Rhone will receive the BMAC Clarence Avant Trailblazer Award.
Lizzo will be honored despite facing a lawsuit from former dancers who have accused her of a toxic work environment.
“The Black Music Action Coalition is proud to honor Lizzo and Sylvia Rhone at this year’s Gala, as they join a group of trailblazers who have made immense impact within the music industry and beyond,” BMAC co-founder Willie “Prophet” Stiggers said. “We applaud their dedication to pushing boundaries, amplifying Black voices and crashing through those glass ceilings creating space for Black women.”
Jermaine Dupri, Keke Palmer and Trae Tha Truth are a few of the other notable names receiving awards at the 2023 BMAC Gala. The event will be held at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.
