The show will air on Bounce TV on Juneteenth -- June 19.
Angie Stone, Ginuwine, Marvin Sapp and Ramsey Lewis will be honored at the 2021 Black Music Honors. The two-hour show will be taped at the City Winery in Nashville and televised in national syndication from June 5 to July 4. It will air on Bounce TV on Saturday, June 19 at 1 p.m. ET. (That date, not coincidentally, is Juneteenth, which celebrates the end of slavery in the U.S.)
All four of the artists being honored have been Black music stars for years, but among them, only Lewis has won a Grammy. (The R&B and jazz virtuoso has won three Grammys.) This demonstrates the need for a show like this to shine a light on stars who aren’t always given their due at other award shows.
