The stars aligned for BET’s “Saving Our Selves: A BET COVID-19 Relief Effort.”
Some of music’s biggest names came together for a virtual concert to help raise money for African-American communities impacted by COVID-19. Co-hosted by Anthony Anderson, Kelly Rowland, Terrence J, and Regina Hall, the two-hour broadcast featured several collaborations including Usher and Ella Mai, Ludacris and Jermaine Dupri, and Chloe x Halle and Swae Lee.
Jhené Aiko and H.E.R. joined forces to perform their duet “B.S.” for the first time. Although they were quarantined in their homes, the R&B singers showed off their chemistry with a stripped-down rendition of their Chilombo collaboration. While H.E.R. played guitar, Jhené flexed on her ex.
The benefit concert raised over $16 million in commitments to aid African-Americans hit hardest by the health and financial crisis. The funds will support over 50 community partners including Feeding America, New York Urban League, Bronx Works, YWCA of Metropolitan Chicago, and more.
Other performers included Alicia Keys, John Legend, Charlie Wilson, and Anthony Hamilton. Watch more highlights below.
