Chance The Rapper, at just 24-years-old, accepted at the humanitarian award at the 2017 BET Awards on Sunday night.

Over the course of the past year, Chance, a proud Chicago native, has donated literally millions of dollars to the city & it’s public school system. And his efforts have no gone unnoticed, and BET decided to award the young rapper with it’s 2017 Humanitarian Award.

But before he could give his acceptance speech, Chance was first showered in praise by none other than Michelle Obama, the former First Lady of the United States. Chance has known the Obamas for years now, as his father, Ken Williams-Bennett, was an aide to then-Senator Barack Obama.

And of course, his acceptance speech consisted of everything that makes Chance special: enthusiasm, compassion, energy, and honesty.

Bless this dude.
