BET celebrated icons in the fields of music, literature, entertainment, media, and education at BET Honors, which aired during Black History Month.
Taped last month in Washington, D.C., the 6th annual event honored Oscar winner Halle Berry, the legendary Chaka Khan, music executive and entrepreneur Clarence Avant, spiritual educator T.D. Jakes, and Olympic gold medalist Lisa Leslie, with musical tributes from Brandy, Alicia Keys, Erykah Badu, and more.
A barefoot Brandy staged the first televised performance of her new single “Without You” with dancer Anthony Burrell. Alicia Keys honored Halle Berry with “Brand New Me,” while Erykah Badu and Ledisi paid homage to Chaka Khan. Plus, Mint Condition serenaded Clarence Avant with their hits “Breakin’ My Heart (Pretty Brown Eyes)” and “Slo Woman.”
