Queen Latifah To Receive Revolt Icon Award
GRAMMY winner and previous GRAMMY Awards host Queen Latifah is adding another honor to her considerable accomplishments: the Icon Award at Sean "Diddy" Combs' upcoming Revolt Music Conference.
Latifah — an Emmy, Golden Globe and GRAMMY winner — will receive the Icon Award in recognition of her achievements in music, film and TV. Last year GRAMMY-nominated rapper Nas was awarded the same honor.
The 2017 conference, which will take place Oct. 12–15 in Miami, is designed as an industry networking conference for those in the music and media content business.
"Influencers, music executives, songwriters, producers, bloggers, and music artists collide to create a collaborative networking space at this must-attend, one-of-a-kind forum that is designed to help guests do one thing; understand and navigate the evolution of the music business," says the website.
GRAMMY winner Lauryn Hill, SZA and Daniel Ceasar will perform during the gala in Latifah's honor on Oct. 14. Other performers throughout the conference include GRAMMY winner 2 Chainz, GRAMMY nominee French Montana and King Combs.
