Rapper Swizz Beatz has been honoured for his work with sick children at a New York hospital.
The Grammy Award-winner received the Breakthrough Spirit Award at The Children's Cancer + Blood Foundation (Ccbf) on 28 October (08) in New York City.
The honour comes after the hip-hop star visited children with cancer or serious blood diseases in hospital.
He said of the award, "I was really impressed by the dedication of the doctors and researchers, and the struggle and bravery of the children. It was a moving experience for me and I am very honoured to be a recipient of this year's Spirit Award."
