Adam Lambert will present the honor at Project Angel Food's 27th annual gala. 

The late George Michael is being granted the Elizabeth Taylor Humanitarian Award by Project Angel Food, an organization that cooks and delivers 10,000 meals every week to those struggling with illness.

The award will be presented at the charity's 27th annual gala in Los Angeles by fellow queer musician, Adam Lambert, who will also be covering a number of Michael's hits from throughout the years.

Michael was a well known advocate for fighting against the AIDS epidemic, especially in the early '90s. During this time, Project Angel Food was going through a financial crisis while trying to assist many people suffering from the disease, and in 1993 Michael left a $25k donation on the charity's doorsteps.

This act of selflessness continued up until the icon's death in 2016. Though George Michael isn't here to receive the award himself, we all know he deserves it.
