"BET is dedicated to identifying outstanding artists early and supporting them in their rise. We’re thrilled to bring our classic Music Matters showcase to SXSW for the third year in a row featuring a vibrant collection of performers; some we’ve rocked with for a while, some relatively new, all with outsized talent. We’re also glad to get down with ASCAP and Yahoo! two entities that, like BET, prove their love and support for music every day,” said Stephen Hill, President of Music Programming and Specials, BET Networks.
