Hundreds of people showed up to McDonald's 365Black Awards.
The awards are to honor African-Americans who have made positive contributions to the community.
10-time grammy winning recording artist Chaka Khan, who founded the Chaka Khan Foundation, was honored for her charitable efforts.
"Helping others and giving back are critical components to making our community stronger, and it was moving to witness the number of celebrities and community members who supported the event. I am humbled I was chosen to receive the 365Black Award with such an amazing group of individuals who also embrace community service. I commend McDonald’s for their ongoing efforts to make community service a priority."
