She is an iconic star in itself.
And Neneh Cherry was the proud mother every inch when her daughter Mabel picked up the female solo artist from the 2020 BRIT awards on Tuesday evening.
The legendary singer, 55, could not hide her joy while her Mad Love hit maker daughter, 23, was announced as a winner and went on stage to ever get her first BRIT prize.

Billie Eilish, 18, received a wink in the International Female Solo Artist category alongside Lizzo and Ariana Grande.
Despite Billie’s success, only four nominations from a possible 25 in the categories that are not gender-specific feature women.
There are no female artists included in the shortlists for best group or album prizes, although the English singer Mabel, 23, has been nominated for three prizes.
Someone who loves hit maker Lewis will compete against Funky Friday rapper Dave, 21, as they compete for the best male solo artist.

The duo will also compete against each other in the Mastercard Album of the Year category, with Lewis dividing his Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent work against Dave’s Psychodrama
They face stiff competition from Stormzy’s new release, Heavy Is The Head, Michael Kiwanuka’s untitled LP and Harry Styles’ Fine Styles album.
Dave is again nominated in the Song of the Year category for Location (ft. Burna Boy), and goes hand in hand with AJ Tracey’s Ladbroke Grove, Calvin Harris & Rag’N’Bone Man’s Giant, Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber’s I Don Care and Lewis is someone you loved.
Also nominated are Mark Ronson’s Nothing Breaks Like a Heart (ft. Miley Cyrus), Stormzy’s Vossi Bop, Sam Smith and Normani’s Dancing With a Stranger, Tom Walker’s Just You and I and Mabel’s Don’t Call Me Up.

Song of the year is just one of three points for Mabel, who is also nominated in the Best New Artist category alongside Aitch, Dave, Lewis Capaldi and Sam Fender, and best female solo artist alongside Charli XCX, FKA Twigs, Freya Ridings and Mahalia .
Bastille, Bring Me The Horizon, Coldplay, D-Block Europe and Foals compete against each other during the Best Group ceremony.
Bruce Springsteen, Burna Boy, Tyler, The Creator, Dermot Kennedy and Post Malone bring it internationally, and have received needs for International Male Solo Artist.

No Tears Left to Cry singer Ariana Grande, 26, fights Billie and Lizzo, as well as Camila Cabello and Lana Del Rey to be named best international female solo artist.
The lack of nominations for female artists comes despite a major revision of the British voice academy in 2017 to make it more gender-balanced and diverse, with hundreds of new members invited to participate in the pool.
The prizes are voted by around 1500 people from the British music industry, including journalists, employees of record labels and musicians.
The rising star winner was announced as Celeste at the end of last year, while the producer of the year will be announced at a later date.
The international group and video categories have been shifted this year by the organizers.
