Huge congratulations to RAYE for winning big at this year’s BRIT Awards, picking up six gongs—the biggest haul from an artist in one awards ceremony. Capping a triumphant night for women across a range of genres, with 70% of 2024’s winning acts either female or non-binary, Raye won BRITs for Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Best New Artist, R&B Act, Songwriter of the Year, and of course the much-coveted Album of the Year!

The ‘Album of the Year’ award was presented by Raye’s former The BRIT School principal, Stuart Worden. Her success at the BRITs is proof that access to great popular music education can provide progression routes into industry on both a national and international stage. We’re proud to work with The BRIT School, which delivers a range of RSL qualifications in Music and Performing Arts at Level 2.
