The Black Business Association (BBA), the oldest ethnic business organization in the State of California, will commemorate Black History Month by presenting its Annual Virtual Salute To Black Music Awards on Thursday, June 25, 2020 at 7pm and Facebook Live.

African-American Music Appreciation Month is a commemoration that takes place annually in the United States, throughout the month of June. Originally proclaimed “Black Music Month” by President Jimmy Carter on June 7, 1979, U.S. presidents have issued proclamations for the celebration under that name until President Barack Obama announced the observance under a new title, African-American Music Appreciation Month.

IN RECOGNITION OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN MUSIC APPRECIATION MONTH, THE BBA CELEBRATES “THE BUSINESS BEHIND THE MUSIC.” Black music is a vital facet of American life and commerce, it touches all communities, and it demonstrates the enduring impact African Americans have worldwide. For this reason, we invite you to join us in honoring those who make black music happen, grow and thrive as a global brand.

Special confirmed honorees are: Gail Mitchell, Executive Director for Billboard R&B & Hip Hop receiving the Outstanding Excellence in Journalism Award, KJLH Radio Station, Owner Stevie Wonder, will receive the Historical Black-Owned Radio Station of Excellence Award and Dick Griffey, Founder, Solar Records, (Posthumously) receiving the Lifetime Legacy Award.

Special Guest Performances by Howard Hewett and Klymaxx, along with Guest Appearances by The Whispers, LA Reid, Leon Sylvers III, Reggie & Vincent Calloways, original members of Midnight Starr, Carrie Lucas-Griffey, Carolyn Griffey, Senator Holly J. Mitchell, L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts, Virgil Roberts Esq, Dina Andrews, and Council Members Herb J. Wesson, Jr. and Curren D. Price, Jr. The show will be M.C. by Andre Ray, Former Lead Singer, LTD (Replacing Jeffrey Osborne), and Staff Writer Solar Records.

In keeping with the Event Theme, “The Business behind the Music”, the (BBA) recognizes the honorees for their contributions in the advancement of African-Americans in the music Industry. Now, more than ever the (BBA) recognizes that in light of the current Black Lives Matter Movement; there is an even greater imperative, to acknowledge those that help to propel Black Lives into success.
