Black-ish star Marsai Martin was among a number of entertainers honored at Sunday night’s Bounce Trumpet Awards.
In tribute to her growing list of achievements, Marsai received the Rising Star Award presented by McDonald’s, which recognizes a young person who is on the rise and making a historical impact in their particular industry.
The 15-year-old actress was lauded as the youngest person to executive-produce a film in Hollywood for her work on her first feature film, “Little,” in which she played a starring role. She also is a part of the talented ensemble cast of ABC’s award-winning comedy series black-ish playing the brash and self-assertive Diane Johnson.
Marsai was honored during the star-studded celebration along with Martin Lawrence, Cedric the Entertainer, Marsai Martin, Ambassador Andrew Young, Hydeia Broadbent, and Phylicia Fant.
Hosted by EMMY® Award-winning comedian, actress and writer Wanda Sykes, the gala black-tie awards show, created by civil rights leader and pioneering broadcast executive, Xernona Clayton, took place on Dec. 4 at Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
