There’s a new awards show in town and it will undoubtedly become one of BET’s most beloved new specials. "BET Honors" is BET’s first awards show to recognize luminaries in business, education, corporate citizenship, entertainment, and public service all in one very special, music-filled night.
Taped at the historic Warner Theater in Washington, DC, the show will give deserved homage to African-American achievers who have made great strides in their careers while giving back to the community at large. (Source: BET)
