Germany’s ECHO Awards have taken place in Berlin to celebrate the best of German music.
Best German Female Artist went to the 20-year-old German-Ghanaian singer Ivy Quainoo for her album titled Simply Ivy.
The ECHO, instituted by the Deutsche Phone Akademie in 1992, is one of the most prestigious music awards in Europe which gives out awards in 27 categories to both German and international stars.
In February last year, Ivy won the first season of the reality show, The Voice of Germany. That was when the country and most parts of Europe fell deeply in love with her voice.
Ivy was born to Ghanaian parents in Berlin. She is widely regarded as one of the fastest rising stars on the German popular music scene and is set for greater achievements.
