People magazine has George Clooney, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Selena Gomez and Regina King named ‘People of the Year 2020’.

Gomez released her album of top charts Special and host of the cooking show Selena + Chef on HBO Max.
But the pop superstar also spread her message of inclusion through her makeup brand Rare Beauty, which set out to raise $ 100 million in 10 years to give people access to mental health initiatives.
King, who won an Emmy in September, used her vote to encourage people to vote. The actor also called for the support of marginalized communities during the pandemic and an end to police brutality against unarmed black people.
