According to THR, the former Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande will be feted at the May 8 industry awards luncheon. Ariana will receive the Breakthrough Artist of the Year Award at the Music Biz 2014 Awards Luncheon on Thursday, May 8, at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.
The Music Business Association, formerly NARM and digitalmusic.org, will present the award to recognize Grande’s achievements over the past year, including a No. 1 debut on the Billboard charts with her first album, Yours Truly, and a double-platinum, Top 10 single with ‘The Way,’ featuring rapper Mac Miller.
‘Ariana is a multitalented 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.’
