Kelly Rowland - Kelly Rowland Lands Music Award

Kelly Rowland has been honoured at the Black Women in Music awards.

The 30-year-old singer performed her Grammy-nominated single 'Motivation' at the annual event, hosted by Essence magazine, and picked up the Rising Icon accolade at the show.

Kelly - who found fame as a teenager in girl group Destiny's Child - was recognised for her longevity in the music industry, and told the Daily Mail she was "humbled" by the honour.

Kelly's former band mate, Michelle Williams, was at the awards, and insisted she could not be prouder.

She said: "We normally like to give each other our space but when Kelly told me she was being honoured, I she said that I had to be here."

Third Destiny's Child member Beyonce Knowles did not make the event, but Michelle said she is already in great shape since giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy last month.

Michelle added: "She looked amazing! You know that she had a six-pack before she gave birth so there's muscle memory. But she looked in fantastic shape already.

"I had a great time meeting Blue Ivy. I hugged her and kissed her and squeezed her. She's so beautiful."

Meanwhile, former Mowtown boss Sylvia Rhone - who has helped the careers of Metallica, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Jason Mraz among others - received the Trailblazer prize for her work in the industry.
