The mu­sic in­dus­try is hon­our­ing Ari­ana Grande.

Bill­board on Tues­day named the 25-year-old award-win­ning singer its 2018 Woman of the Year. 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.

In a state­ment Bill­board’s vice pres­i­dent of con­tent Ross Scarano says 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.”

In the past year, Grande has had Top 40 hits in­clud­ing

No Tears Left To Cry, Breathin’ and God Is A Woman.

She helped or­gan­ise the One Love Manch­ester con­cert last year, rais­ing more than $23 mil­lion for vic­tims of the Manch­ester bomb­ing.
