TORONTO – Toronto alternative R&B singer the Weeknd will be honoured at Canada’s Walk of Fame Show next month.
Organizers say the 24-year-old will receive the Allan Slaight Award at the event on Oct. 18.
The annual award, which comes with a $10,000 honorarium, “recognizes young, inspirational Canadians who have achieved international success” in various fields.
Last year’s recipient was Carly Rae Jepsen.
He’s since launched his own record label, released a studio album and earned two Juno Awards.
