Silver Springs, MD- Jazmine Sullivan, Da Brat, and more artists will perform and celebrate the International Sweethearts of Rhythm during the 2021 URBAN ONE HONORS.


On Sunday, May 16, the URBAN ONE HONORS awards will pay homage to the International Sweethearts of Rhythm, who defined all of the odds with overcoming sexism, racism, and not many people who supported them.


"I am thrilled to pay homage to the sheroes whose lives depict black excellence, leadership and service. It is also quite humbling to recognize my mother, Helen Jones Woods, and the young musicians who were a part of the International Sweethearts of Rhythm, among this year’s honorees," said Cathy Hughes, Chairwoman, Urban One Inc. "Urban One Honors was created as an extension of our 40-year mission of service. We remain committed to creating programming that fulfills that mission and presents the best of who we are."

Outside of the performances, the awards will recognize women who achieved success in their career fields, as well as their communities.
