NFL brothers and American Cancer Society ambassadors Quinnen Williams of the New York Jets and Quincy Williams from the Jacksonville Jaguars will be honored with the “Faith In Action” Award. The Williams brothers lost their mother to breast cancer in 2010. They’re turning their family tragedy into a mission by donating their time and resources to ensure African American people receive proper testing for cancer in their communities.

The largest multicultural event taking place during Super Bowl weekend has previously featured artists including Patti LaBelle, Gladys Knight, Natalie Grant, Mary Mary, Fantasia, Anthony Hamilton, and many more.
