Taking place on Thursday, May 8, at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles, the Music Biz 2014 Awards Luncheon will see Grande handed the awarded to praise the star for her groundbreaking #1 debut ‘Yours Truly‘, the success of its singles and her continued success in Pop’s arena.
On the honour, Music Biz president James Donio shared:
“Ariana is a multi-talented entertainer, commanding both the microphone and the camera in her dual careers as a musician and actress. While Nickelodeon fans have known her for years from her roles on hit TV shows Victorious and Sam & Cat, she exploded into the music world this year with her stunning debut album. Our recognition just underscores her potential for even greater success in the years ahead.”
This, met with the response shared by the singer herself, which reads:
“Music has always been my first love, so receiving this Award is a true honor for me. I’ve been pursuing a career as a singer since I was eight, and it’s a great feeling to know that the industry has embraced me with open arms. I’d like to thank everyone at Music Biz and, of course, my fans, and I can’t wait to get back in the studio and do this all over again!”
