A network spokeswoman says BET Networks CEO Debra Lee will ask viewers to give money to the anti-poverty organization CARE to benefit the earthquake survivors in Haiti. The honorees also are expected to talk about ways to give.
Besides Houston, Latifah and Combs, the other honorees include educator Ruth Simmons and neurosurgeon Keith Black.
BET parent company Viacom Inc. also is matching employee contributions to the American Red Cross.
