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 Dec. 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 organize the One Love Manchester concert last year, raising more than $23 million US for victims of the Manchester bombing.
