周二晚上举行的2017体育人物颁奖盛典（Sportsperson of the Year Awards）上，超级巨星碧昂斯(Beyonce)出任惊喜颁奖嘉宾。
She turned up to give the Muhammad Ali Legacy Award to former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
她把穆罕默德·阿里精神传承奖（Muhammad Ali Legacy Award）颁给了旧金山49人队的前四分卫科林·凯珀尼克（Colin Kaepernick）。
The singer said that she felt "so good to be here on such a special night of appreciation" and thanked Kaepernick for his "selfless heart," "conviction" and "personal sacrifice."
The football player became a catalyst for conversation when he began kneeling during the National Anthem before games to protest police brutality and racial inequality.
Kaepernick accepted the award saying "With or without the NFL's platform I will continue to work for the people because my platform is the people."
