Vote like our life depends on it: Beyonce at BET Awards
Beyonce used her platform on Sunday while accepting the BET humanitarian award to relay a direct appeal to viewers: Go vote'.
“Your voices are being heard and you’re proving to our ancestors that their struggles were not in vain,” said the singer at the BET Awards, which celebrated its 20 years of highlighting excellence in Black-led entertainment.
Beyonce was honoured for her philanthropic work and relief efforts during the Covid-19 crisis. She said voting in the upcoming election was the way to end a “racist and unequal system” in America.
“I’m encouraging you to take action,” she said following an introduction by former First Lady Michelle Obama. “We have to vote like our lives depend on it, because it does,” she said.
