A singer from Kings Langley has been named the winner of the Brit Awards' Rising Star prize.

Griff - Sarah Faith Griffiths - from Kings Langley appeared on the BBC's Sound of 2021 list, and provided the song for Disney's Christmas TV advert last year.

The Rising Star award recognises pop's most promising musicians to watch, past winners include Adele, and Celeste.


Griff was just 11 when she started making music. After years honing and perfecting her craft alone, she began to start playing some of her own songs to other musicians she had met at church.

By the age of 16 Griff was ready to flex her creative artistry and she started booking studio sessions; all while in high school. She was still at school when she released her debut single “Mirror Talk".

She signed to Warner Music and her Mirror Talk EP was released to widespread acclaim in 2019 (just as she graduated high school).

Last year, she released two hugely acclaimed singles, “Forgive Myself” and “Say It Again”.

The rest of this year's Brit Award winners will be announced at a ceremony on 11 May.
