The 7th annual BET Honors were filmed Saturday February 8, 2014 at the historic Warner Theater in Washington, DC. Seated third row, center stage, were Dreamer Management executive team members Bradford “Jazzy” Smith, CEO, and Auntea Marie, VP of Marketing & Communications.
Each year BET celebrates extraordinary African-American achievers for their inspiring work across a variety of industries. This year’s honorees included Aretha Franklin (Musical Arts Award), Carrie Mae Weems (Visual Arts Award), Ice Cube (Entertainment Award), Kenneth Chenault (Corporate Citizen Award), Berry Gordy (Visionary Award), and a tribute to the life-work of Nelson Mandela.
Wayne Brady hosted the event, and we were graced with performances by Jennifer Hudson, Mariah Carey, Janelle Monae, Jessica Betts, Tamar Braxton, Karen Clark Sheard, Smokey Robinson, and the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin.
Tune into BET on Monday, 2/24, at 9pm Eastern Standard Time to view the full production.
