With Billboard’s highly anticipated 14th annual Women in Music event just weeks away, the Music Bible has finally lifted the lid on its roster of 2019 honorees.
Alicia Keys, Megan the Stallion, and Spanish singer-songwriter Rosalía complete the list of the event’s celebrated acts.
Keys will be honored with the American Express Impact Award for her work with She is the Music, which she formed with Jody Gerson, Sam Kirby Yoh and Ann Mincieli.
Megan Thee Stallion, quickly establishing herself as a cultural icon by spearheading the “hot girl summer” trend, will receive this year’s Powerhouse Award for rolling out endless hits. Spanish singer-songwriter Rosalía will receive the Rising Star Award after changing the sound of today’s mainstream music with her fresh flamenco-influenced pop.
Joining the list of previously announced honorees Taylor Swift (Woman of the Decade Award), Billie Eilish (Woman of the Year Award), Nicki Minaj (Game Changer Award), and more at the 2019 Women in Music ceremony, the trio of acts will be presented their awards at the Hollywood Palladium on December 12.
This year’s event – sponsored by YouTube Music, American Express, and more – will be hosted by last year’s Rising Star honoree Hayley Kiyoko.
