DoSomething.org has released their  Celebs Gone Good list for 2017 to honor the celebs that fought for positive change and gave back to their communities in major ways.

This year, Chance the Rapper took the number one spot, which was given to Queen Bey herself in 2016.

While Beyonce still ranked high on this year’s list, other names that took a win were Colin Kaepernick, Ariana Grande, and Rihanna.

The rankings were determined through online votes, which included social media, a STARmeter ranking on the Internet Movie Database and the opinions of the Celebs Gone Good Advisory Committee.
