Camila Cabello is earning special recognition…
The 20-year-old Cuban singer will be honored at Billboard‘s annual Women in Music dinner and awards ceremony in Los Angeles on November 30.
Cabello, who rose to acclaim as a member of Fifth Harmony before departing the all-girl group in December, will receive the ‘Breakthrough Artist‘ award.
Since launching her solo career, Cabello’s star has been on the rise. She most recently earned her first No. 1 single in the U.K. with her steamy new single “Havana.”
Meanwhile, Kehlani will be handed the ‘Rule Breaker‘ award at the event.
The 21-year-old part-Spanish singer notched her first No. 1 on Billboard’s R&B Albums chart earlier this year, and she most recently appeared on Calvin Harris’ new album, Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1.
Cabello and Kehlani will perform at the reception, which is set to take place at the Ray Dolby Ballroom.
The Women in Music event is held in conjunction with Billboard‘s Women in Music issue, honoring the industry’s most powerful artists and executives.
This year, Selena Gomez has been named Billboard‘s Woman of the Year.
“We look forward to celebrating the amazing talent and power of these female artists and executives who continue to inspire and impact others through their achievements and contributions to the music industry,” says Dana Miller, Chief Marketing Officer of The Hollywood Reporter – Billboard Media Group. “Each year, our Women in Music event brings together the most trailblazing women in music and this year will be no exception.”
Women in Music’s red carpet pre-show, as well as the event, are scheduled to live stream via Twitter on November 30 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm PT / 9:00 pm to 12:00 am ET.
