Dionne Warwick, Chloé Bailey, Frankie Beverly and Donald Lawrence will be honored at the 2024 Urban One Honors, set to record on Saturday, Jan. 20 at the Coca Cola Roxy in Atlanta.

Warwick will receive the lifetime achievement honor, Bailey as the generation next honoree, Beverly as a living legend, and Lawrence for his inspirational impact.

Both Warwick and Beverly have had their classic hits successfully revived recently. Doja Cat’s “Paint the Town Red,” featuring Warwick’s 1964 hit “Walk on By,” topped the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks last year. In 2019, Beyoncé covered Beverly’s 1981 hit with Maze, “Before I Let Go,” on Homecoming: The Live Album.

Warwick, 83, was honored at the Kennedy Center Honors and received a lifetime achievement award from the Recording Academy in 2019.

Lawrence, 62, won a Grammy in 2008 for best traditional gospel album for Live – One Last Time.

Bailey, 25, has received five Grammy nods, including best new artist, as part of Chloe X Halle.

Beverly, 77, the leader of Frankie Beverly & Maze, has never been nominated for a Grammy, but the group received a BET lifetime achievement award at the 2012 BET Awards.

“As we unveil the lineup for this year’s Urban One Honors, we are delighted to highlight incredible musical journeys,”

Michelle Rice, president of TV One and CLEO TV, said in a statement.

“Their selection as honorees is a recognition of their profound impact on both music and culture, spanning generations.”

The 2024 Urban One Honors marks the official kickoff celebration for TV One’s 20th Anniversary. Throughout the year, TV One is set to roll out an array of special programming featuring curated retrospectives, exclusive behind-the-scenes content and a series of commemorative events.
