Usher to Receive Lifetime Achievement BET Award.

Usher is set to receive a Lifetime Achievement BET Award.

The 45-year-old star will be honored for his career achievements at the BET Awards at the Peacock Theatre in Los Angeles on June 30.

Connie Orlando, the BET EVP, Specials, Music Programming and Music Strategy, said: “The relationship between BET and Usher spans decades, from his multiple appearances on 106 and Park, to most recently winning the Entertainer of the Year trophy at the 55th NAACP Image Awards. From his chart-topping hits, electrifying performances, and unforgettable vocals to his signature moves and sound, Usher continues to stand on culture, setting new standards for the music industry and black excellence.

“We look forward to creating an amazing line-up to pay tribute to our global icon.”

Previous winners of the award include Whitney Houston, Prince, Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, Samuel Jackson, and Lionel Richie.

Usher performed the Super Bowl half-time show in Las Vegas earlier this year, and the chart-topping star admitted that it was one of the highlights of his career.
