Anthony Hamilton is scheduled to perform during the 2009 BET Honors Award Show, airing February 9 on the cable network, according to an email I received tonight from his publicist at studio b public relations. The Charlotte native will sing during a tribute to Judith Jamison, a 2009 honoree and artistic director of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

It'll be an exciting week for Hamilton. A day earlier, on February 8, he'll learn if he wins a Grammy Award during the live telecast of the 51st annual award show on CBS. He's nominated along with Al Green for Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for their duet, “You’ve Got the Love I Need."

Hamilton continues to tour in support of his album, The Point Of It All, which was released last month. Below is a video montage of him performing the classic Sam Cook song, "A Change Is Gonna Come," during some recent concerts. He's one of the best voices of our generation, but it's almost as if he was born two generations too late.
