The 7th annual Black Music Honors returns to Atlanta this year, with some of the biggest stars of today to be honored for their contributions to American music.  

This year’s batch of remarkable honorees include award-winning group Dru Hill who rose to stardom in the 90s for number-one hits like “In My Bed” and “Never Make a Promise.” The group will receive the Urban Music Icon Award.

Five-time Grammy nominee Tevin Campbell will be honored with the R&B Icon Award, Grammy winning gospel duo Mary Mary will be presented with the Gospel Icon Award, and NAACP Image Award-Winner Karyn White will be recognized with the Soul Music Award. The Music and Songwriter Icon Award will go to Keri Hilson for her contributions as a writer on some of the biggest songs in music history, and the legendary R&B Group The Whispers will take home the Legends Award for their work over the last six decades. 

“We are more than excited to return to in-person taping for the first time in nearly three years with a live studio audience,” founder and Executive Producer Don Jackson said. “The pandemic had an unprecedented impact on the music industry and we’re honored to celebrate, commemorate and honor music trailblazers who have paved the way for the next generation of music and culture.”

The two-hour live celebration will be hosted by singer LeToya Luckett along with comedian DeRay Davis and will air via national broadcast syndication from June 4 through July 3. It will also air on June 25 on Bounce TV, the same network that will present the 30th Annual Trumpet Awards a week prior, on Juneteenth.
