The singer has been shortlisted for the Media Champion in Public Eye at the British Diversity Awards, sponsored by Burberry, alongside the likes of Denise Welch, Tom Daley and Marcus Rashford.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock: Race, Pop and Power was praised by critics and viewers alike as the singer laid bare the prejudices she’s faced in the industry and strove to make it more inclusive for people from minority backgrounds.
Insiders claim she is a heavy favourite to take home the prize at the ceremony, which will be hosted by June Sarpong on March 10 inside London’s Grand Connaught Rooms.
Back in November Leigh-Anne took home the Media Progress Moment gong at the 2021 Ethnicity Awards.
She said in her video acceptance speech: “Thank you for the amazing contributors to the documentary who shared their stories – the film would be nothing without you. In the words of Dawn Butler ‘when the history books are written, what’s going to be said next to your name?’ The hard work doesn’t stop here.”Credit: thesun.co.uk
