Ariana Grande, her manager Scooter Braun and promoters Melvin Benn of Festival Republic and Simon Moran of SJM Concerts, were recognised as Industry Champions for their efforts organising One Love Manchester, at the Artist & Manager Awards in London.

The concert was a response to the bomb attack at Manchester Arena in May.

The event is organised by the Music Manager’s Forum and Featured Artist Coalition.
