Billboard reports that Chance The Rapper will be receiving the 2018 iHeartRadio Innovator Award, which recognizes his “groundbreaking accomplishments in the music industry and his unsurpassable contributions to social causes.” Chance has been very generous when it comes to donating & giving back to his community. Just last year, he donated $1 million to Chicago’s public school programs. So it’s safe to say he’s worthy the accolade.

In addition to Chance’s award, Camila Cabello will also be honored with the first ever iHeartRadio Fangirls Award, which is meant to “recognize a female artist who has pushed boundaries with her music and message while inspiring her fans around the globe.”

Jon Bon Jovi is also getting recognized at next month’s award show with the 2018 Icon Award, which Queen Latifah took home last year. Bon Jovi will also be performing at the show, and later be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Fame in April.

Other performances who are scheduled to take the stage at next month’s award show is Cardi B, Ed Sheehan, Maroon 5, Camilla Cabello, and more.
