Jessie Ware will be presented with the Best Newcomer Award at the Nordoff Robbins Silver Clef Awards.
The 'Running' singer is delighted to be receiving the trophy for her debut album, 'Devotion', which saw her catapulted into the spotlight after the success of her single 'Wildest Moments'.
Jessie said: "I am so honoured to be receiving this award from Nordoff Robbins, who do such amazing work helping people with music therapy.
"I am really looking forward to the Awards. It's been such a wonderful year for me and to be getting this award is a really special one."
Jessie has narrowly missed out on other awards as 'Devotion' was nominated for the 2012 Mercury Prize and she was included in the British Breakthrough Act category at the BRIT Awards 2013.
David Munns, Chairman of Nordoff Robbins said: "Jessie Ware was the only choice for this year's Newcomer Award at the O2 Silver Clef Awards."
Music charity Nordoff Robbins raises money to provide music therapy across the UK at schools, day centres and hospitals to help children and adults with a variety of difficulties.
The 38th Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards take place on June 28 in London.
