The Recording Academy and the Black Music Collective will present Mariah Carey and Lenny Kravitz with 2024’s Global Impact Awards, according to Billboard. Carey and Kravitz will accept the trophies on Thursday, February 1, at the Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

The Global Impact Award is a CEO Merit Award that recognizes Black music creators whose “dedication to the art form has greatly influenced the industry,” the Recording Academy stated in a press release. Honorees are recognized for their “inspirational legacy of service and celebrated for the myriad ways recipients’ leadership and passion has empowered others to embrace authenticity and contribute to positive change.”

Last year, the Global Impact Award was presented to Missy Elliott, Dr. Dre, Lil Wayne, and Epic Records CEO Sylvia Rhone. The 2024 Grammy Awards take place on Sunday, February 4 at Arena in Los Angeles.

Mariah Carey is not nominated at the 2024 Grammy Awards, but Terry Hunter got a nod in Best Remixed Recording for his remix of the singer’s “Workin’ Hard.” Kravitz will be at the Grammys on Sunday as one of the show’s many presenters.
