Jess, who has just been announced to perform at Capital's Summertime Ball, said: "I am thrilled to be receiving the Jack Daniel's Best Newcomer award at the O2 Silver Clef Awards. Music is such a healer, and what Nordoff Robbins are doing is really inspiring."

Jess' debut album, I Cry When I Laugh, was released in 2015 and debuted at number one on the UK albums chart.

Other than dominating the charts with her string of chart-topping hits, Jess also served as a guest judge on The X Factor last year.

Michael Boaler, senior brand manager at Jack Daniel's, sponsors of the Best Newcomer Award, said: "We are delighted to be supporting Nordoff Robbins again at this year's Silver Clef Awards. It's been quite a year for Jess Glynne. Even before the release of I Cry When I Laugh late last summer there was a sense that there was something special bubbling under, following numerous successful singles.

"I'm sure it comes as no great surprise to many that she's won Jack Daniel's Best Newcomer Award. Well done Jess!"

Alongside Jess, Florence Welch - singer, songwriter and lead singer of British indie rock band Florence and The Machine - will be presented with the Best Female gong at the ceremony on 1 July at London's Grosvenor House Hotel.

In its 41-year history, the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards has honoured some of the biggest names in the music industry including David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John, The Bee Gees, Michael Buble, Kylie Minogue, Pharrell Williams, Il Divo and many more.
