R&B singer/songwriter Jazmine Sullivan will be feted with the Rising Star Award at next month's (Dec10) Billboard Women in Music Event.
The Bust Your Windows star will be honoured alongside the publication's Woman of the Year recipient, Fergie, when they take to the stage at the New York ceremony on 2 December (10).
And Sullivan is excited to be following in the footsteps of previous honouree Lady Gaga.
She tells Billboard.com, "I admire Lady Gaga, so to be honoured in a category that she was once in is such a rewarding feeling. When I heard the news, I was so happy. I feel honoured to be chosen as this year's Rising Star."
The award is presented to artists who have started to achieve success and shown great potential in the early stages of their careers.
