The NFL brothers and ambassadors of the American Cancer Society, Quinnen Williams from the New York Jets and Quincy Williams from the Jacksonville Jaguars, are awarded the "Faith In Action" award. The Williams brothers lost their mother to breast cancer in 2010. They are turning their family tragedy into a mission by donating their time and resources to ensure that African Americans receive adequate cancer tests in their communities.
The largest multicultural event taking place on the Super Bowl weekend previously included artists such as Patti LaBelle, Gladys Knight, Natalie Grant, Mary Mary, Fantasia, Anthony Hamilton and many more.
