5 most powerful moments from the 2020 BET Awards (video)

Michelle Obama honors Beyoncé 

Former FLOTUS Michelle Obama presented Beyoncé with the Humanitarian Award. “I am here to talk about The Queen, you know the one,” Obama said. “Ever since she was a little girl in Houston, Beyoncé Knowles Carter has been lighting up the stages and gracing the world with her talent, with her generosity of spirit and with her love for her community.”

During her acceptance speech, Beyoncé spoke about the Black Lives Matter movement and the importance of voting. “Your voices are being heard,” said Beyoncé. “And you’re proving to our ancestors that their struggles were not in vain. … I’m encouraging you to continue to take action, continue to work to change a racist and unequal system. We have to continue to do this together.”
