The musician/philanthropist was presented the award - which was announced earlier this month - for her "groundbreaking career as an artist and musician" but also for her business achievements and "her tremendous record as an activist and philanthropist", says Derrick Johnson, president and CEO of the NAACP.

The eight-year-old took home the gong for outstanding duo/group for Brown Skin Girl, a song celebrating dark and brown-skinned women.

The "Umbrella" singer received a standing ovation for her powerful speech when accepting the President's Award at the star-studded ceremony at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California.

The multi-award-winning actress won the best actress award for her role in Jordan Peele's horror movie Us and subsequently won the Outstanding Literary work fo children with her book, Sulwe.

Completely unsurprisingly, Queen Bey and Jay Z's daughter Blue Ivy is incredibly musically talented.

Following a big night at the 62nd GRAMMY Awardslast month, where she won three golden gramophones, Lizzo took home two major awards at the 2020 NAACP Image Awards last night, including Entertainer Of The Year and Outstanding Music Video/Visual Album for "Juice". "The youngest artist to win a major awardGrandma is soo proud of you❤️❤️❤️ 8 years old!❤️ You are giving all the lovely little brown girls a voice ❤️", she wrote on the social media app. Congrats! "Grandma is soo proud of you", she wrote with a photo of Blue Ivy.

"Congratulations BLUE IVY on your NAACP award last night for singing and writing on "Brown Skin Girl" from the Album The Gift".

Lupita had also been nominated for the Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance for her role in the documentary Serengeti by Discovery Channel but lost out to James Earl Jones for his role in The Lion King by Walt Disney Studios.

On the same night, other top stars including Oprah Winfrey were awarded for their contribution to Literature and Drama.

15-year-old Martin also won Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Performance by a Youth for Black-ish. Still, we prevail.so I'm honored. Her first-look deal with Universal made big news.
