The brilliant violinist came top of the classical category at this year’s star-studded Global Awards
The great Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti won the Best Classical Award at The Global Awards 2019, a category that was voted for by the public.
It was a big day for Nicola – the award came on the same day that she collected her CBE from Buckingham Palace.
Accepting the award, Nicola said: "Thank you so much for this honour. Classical music is a very intimate form of music and it's often a longer form of music and can take more concentration, but it's so so worth it."
