Michelle Obama pays glowing tribute to 'my girl' Beyonce

Beyoncé gets honoured with BET Humanitarian Award by Michelle Obama

"We have to continue to do this together, continue to fight for each other and lift each other up because there are people banking on us staying at home during local elections in primaries happening in states across the country", Beyoncé said.

The well-deserved award was also perfectly presented by former First Lady Michelle Obama, who herself has built a legacy with her charity work both when she was in the White House and as a co-founder of the Obama Foundation alongside her husband Barack Obama.

"We need something to brighten us up, to uplift us", BET Award nominee Karen Clark Sheard, member of the legendary gospel group The Clark Sisters, said about the timing of Sunday's show in an interview with CNN this week.

Newcomer Roddy Ricch (eds correct) wore a "Black Lives Matter" shirt, John Legend played his ballad, "We Will Never Break", and Alicia Keys sang an emotional new song, "Perfect Way to Die", about the black lives lost over the decades. You inspire all of us."Obama ended the tribute with a smile, saying, "Congratulations girl, love you so much".

The previous record for youngest victor was held by Willow Smith, who shared the YoungStars award with her brother, Jaden, when she was 10. "That's why she's always pulling up young performers like Chloe x Halle, and that orchestra that dazzled us in her homecoming special", she added.
