Halsey will be honored as part of Billboard's 11th annual Women in Music event, held Dec. 9 in New York City and airing nationally on Lifetime on Dec. 12.
The chart-topping singer-songwriter, who will also perform during the ceremony, is this year's Women in Music 'Rising Star,' recognized for her chart dominance and exceptional, unconventional talent.
“Halsey is the voice of a generation, someone who is an impassioned political advocate and personal artist, the kind who can have a No. 1 single, as she did with ‘Closer,’ and not at all be categorized as your typical pop star," Min says. "Her credibility and talent make her a must-have collaborator for the likes of Justin Bieber and The Chainsmokers. Her incredible talent has earned her this year’s Rising Star award and we look forward to hearing what’s next from her as she continues making music during what we know will be a long and successful career.”
