NEW YORK-- The music industry is honoring Ariana Grande.
Billboard named the 25-year-old award-winning singer its 2018 Woman of the Year Tuesday, November 6. Grande will receive the award at Billboard's 13th annual Women in Music event on December 6 in New York City.
Previous recipients include Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Madonna and Selena Gomez.
“Grande consistently stands up for herself and her decisions in a world that often isn't hospitable to that sort of strength in young women,” Ross Scarano, Billboard’s vice president of content, said in a statement.
In the past year, Grande has had Top 40 hits including “No Tears Left To Cry,” “Breathin,” and “God Is A Woman.”
Grande helped organize the One Love Manchester concert last year, raising more than $23 million for victims of the Manchester bombing.(AP)
