Alicia Keys has picked up Amnesty's Ambassador of Conscience Award for 2017.

The R&B artist is also noted for her charity work, in particular working alongside charities that benefit refugees.

In 2014 she co-founded the We Are Here movement, and appeared in the short film Let Me In last year.

“The Ambassador of Conscience Award is Amnesty International’s highest honour, celebrating those who have shown exceptional leadership and courage in championing human rights,” said Salil Shetty, Amnesty International’s Secretary General.

Alicia Keys said of the honour: “To be given this great honour, and to be in the presence of the Indigenous rights movement is a humbling experience. It encourages me to continue to speak out against injustice and use my platform to draw attention to the issues that matter to me.”
