Lizzo And Sylvia Rhone To Be Honored At 2023 BMAC Gala

Lizzo to be presented with the Quincy Jones Humanitarian Award. Epic Records CEO and chair Rhone will get the Clarence Avant Trailblazer Award at the Gala, according to a press release.
“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 an immense impact within the music industry and beyond,” BMAC co-founder and chair Willie “Prophet” Siggers said. “We applaud their dedication to pushing boundaries, amplifying Black voices and crashing through those glass ceilings, creating space for Black women.”

While Lizzo has been under scrutiny lately due to a lawsuit which several of her dancers have filed a lawsuit accusing the singer of sexual, religious, and racial harassment, as well as fat shaming, the BMAC will honor her good works.

Additionally, after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Lizzo donated $1 million to Planned Parenthood and the National Network of Abortion Funds in order to increase accessibility to reproductive health care for women. All the while, she’s continued to speak her message of inclusivity and body positivity in her music and clothing line.

Other BMAC honorees include big names like Keke Palmer, Jermaine Dupri, and Jesse Collins.
