Civil Rights activist Shaun King and Barbadian Prime Minister Mia Mottley will be honored at Rihanna’s 5th Annual Diamond Ball for their efforts in making a difference in the community.

In a statement to Variety, the “Love On The Brain” singer says, “I can’t imagine a better night than this year’s Clara Lionel Foundation event with Seth Meyers, Pharrell, and DJ Khaled. I am particularly honored to present Prime Minister Mottley and Shaun King with this year’s Diamond Ball Awards for their groundbreaking work. We are so thankful to them for joining us and making the night better than ever.”
