I have some great news for all of my fellow New Edition fans! It has just been revealed that BET will be presenting the legendary R&B group with the Lifetime Achievement Award!
There’s also some good news for Chance the Rapper as he will be honored with the Humanitarian Award presented by Walmart.
Earlier this year BET helped the band kick off their 30th anniversary with a three-part docuseries about the group’s career and personal life called The New Edition Story, which was a MAJOR ratings success.
