In a touching moment during Saturday’s show, The Black Promoters Collective surprised Beverly with a $25,000 donation to his Frankie Beverly Scholarship Fund. This fund supports minority students pursuing careers in the music industry, reflecting Beverly’s commitment to education and community.

“It’s an honor to tell you face to face, I love you. On behalf of my partners, The Black Promoters Collective, we had the opportunity to tour this man around the world, a Black producing promotion company. As we end this tour in our home city, we want to say thank you to a living legend,” said BPC’s Senior Talent Buyer & Partner, Walt Reeder Jr. This highlight of the night furthered the magic that this partnership has created with Frankie’s retirement after more than 50 years in the music industry, marking a monumental end to a notable career.”


Eagles’ quarterback Jalen Hurts and Philadelphia Mayor Cherelle Parker joined in honoring Beverly, celebrating his enduring impact on music and culture.
