New Edition to be honored at the BET AWARDS

Today (June 6), BET revealed iconic R&B group New Edition will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2017 “BET Awards.” In addition, multi–Grammy Award winning hip-hop artist Chance the Rapper will receive the evening’s Humanitarian Award presented by Walmart.

In January 2017, BET launched The New Edition Story, a three-part miniseries that was also BET’s first scripted music-focused program which was a ratings smash. The miniseries profiled the New Edition journey from the little-known boy band from the Orchard Park Projects of Roxbury, Massachusetts, to one of the most successful adult acts ever in the music industry. To date, New Edition has sold over 20 million records world-wide.
