Teyana Taylor, meanwhile, will be given the Visionary award, which is given to “game-changers” in the music industry. And Brandy will be given the Muse award for her “legacy, impact, and timeless music inspires past, current, and future generations.”
Other honorees at this year’s gala include Flo Milli — who will be receiving the Bloom award for being a breakthrough artist — Jordyn Woods and her sister, Jodie, Nova Wav, and Monaleo.
“After experiencing the powerful joy, inspiration, and genuine love of our inaugural event, we’re thrilled to bring together more trailblazing women and honor their impact at the 2nd annual Give Her FlowHERS Awards Gala,” Heather Lowery, CEO and founder of Femme It Forward, said in a statement to the outlet. “This awards gala goes beyond giving the extraordinary women who have impacted culture their flowers, as we look to plant more seeds of change for the future.”
