The Weekend got emotional while receiving the Quincy Jones Humanitarian award at the 2021 Music in Action Awards in Los Angeles.
He was given the award for his various significant contributions to social justice, change, and equity.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the singer has donated to several causes, including Black Lives Matter Global Justice.
He talked about Quincy Jones in his speech and said, “He was teaching me a lesson in that moment that nothing is more important than the people, and giving back is always better than receiving. Tonight in honor of Quincy Jones, I will receive this accolade. It’s the best award I’ve ever gotten in my life… I don’t take this for granted.”
If you could win any award, what would it be for?
