Blue Ivy Carter has been named a winner of yet another award. On Sunday (Dec. 19), JAY-Z and Beyoncé’s oldest daughter won Best Voiceover – Children’s Audiobook at the 2021 Voice Arts Awards for her work on Matthew A. Cherry’s Hair Love.

Carter was tapped to narrate the audio version of the children’s book, which simultaneously celebrates Black hair and the relationships between African-American fathers and their daughters. The idea for Hair Love came after Cherry noticed the admiration following “viral videos about African American fathers that were doing their daughter’s hair.”

“It really seemed like it was an anomaly, people were really sharing it because they weren’t used to seeing it,” the author previously explained. “I just wanted to normalize it and kind of shine a light cause oftentimes Black men get a bad rap in not being involved in their kids’ lives, and I really wanted to showcase a strong Black family unit and show that dads are present.”

Following the announcement of Carter’s win, Cherry took to Instagram to congratulate the young star. Tina Knowles-Lawson also celebrated her granddaughter’s recent accomplishment.

“Congrats my Blue you killed this!!” she wrote. “It’s only the beginning! You are so talented! Grandma is beyond proud!!!”

Blue Ivy Carter has been racking up awards since the start of the year. In March, she picked up her first-ever Grammy award for her work on Beyoncé’s “Brown Skin Girl,” making history as the second-youngest winner in the Recording Academy’s history. The video for the song also won the NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Music Video/Visual Album and earned her the title as the VMA’s youngest winner when it won the MTV Video Music Awards for Best Cinematography.
