Congratulations are in order for Blue Ivy Carter thriving to her own glory. Earlier this year we celebrated Blue winning their first Grammy Award. Now she has added another award to her growing collection. On Sunday, show officials announced that Blue Ivy won Best Voiceover at the 2021 Voice Arts Awards.
She was selected as the winner for the narration of the audio book version of the popular children’s story “Hair Love”. Writer Matthew A. Cherry spent some time on Instagram shortly after winning, congratulating Blue Ivy.
“Congratulations to Blue Ivy Carter for Best Audiobook Narration – Children (Infanta 12 and younger) at the @societyvoicearts Awards last night for #HairLove,” wrote Matthew on Monday.
In addition to the author and Blue, the producer of the audio book Erick Black was also included in the prize! For those unfamiliar with the book, it explores and celebrates the relationship between African American fathers and their daughters. Viral videos of black fathers combing their daughter’s crowns were Matthew’s inspiration for his book.
That didn’t stop Blue Ivy’s congratulations. Her maternal grandmother Tina Lawson also showed her grandbaby some love.
“Congratulations, my Blue, you killed that,” wrote Tina. “It’s just the beginning! You are so talented! Grandma is more than proud !!!”
Star on the rise
As mentioned earlier, Blue Ivy has a growing collection of awards including a prestigious Grammy. The nine-year-old won together with her legendary mom Beyoncé. This duo won the Best Music Video Award for their ‘Brown Skin Girl’ project. The song went viral among black girls and women around the world after its release in the summer of 2020. The win made Blue Ivy the second youngest winner at the time.
This year Blue Ivy won not only a Grammy and Voice Arts Award, but also a Video Music Award. The young star won the “Best Camera” category for “Brown Skin Girl” with Beyoncé at the MTV VMAs 2021. This time, Blue Ivy took the title of youngest VMA winner in its history.
