Mary J. Blige is one of the most iconic voices in music. With this, it’s better to give someone their flowers while they’re still alive and BET is looking to do so. The network will honor her with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2019 BET Awards.

Blige has established a career spanning decades, having already won nine Grammys and a total of eight multi-platinum selling albums. However, Blige has also managed to flourish outside of music. She’s an accomplished actress, as well as a Oscars and Golden Globe Award nominated artist.

The select group of winners includes the likes of Whitney Houston, James Brown, New Edition, Prince, Al Green and other big names.

The 19th annual BET awards ceremony is set to take place on June 23 in Los Angeles.
