Halsey to receive Rising Star honour at the Billboard Women in Music Awards

Hitmaker Halsey will be given the Rising Star honour at Billboard's 11th annual Women in Music event, which is due to take place on December 9 in New York City. 

She will be given the award for her talent and contributions to modern music and Janice Min, co-president and chief creative officer of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group, explained that choosing her as the recipient was easy:

"Halsey is the voice of a generation, someone who is an impassioned political advocate and personal artist, the kind who can have a No. 1 single, as she did with ‘Closer,’ and not at all be categorised as your typical pop star. Her credibility and talent make her a must-have collaborator for the likes of Justin Bieber and The Chainsmokers."

"Her incredible talent has earned her this year’s Rising Star award and we look forward to hearing what’s next from her as she continues making music during what we know will be a long and successful career.”
