The biennial £10,000 prize in memory of a British soprano who was taken by cancer at 40 has been awarded this year to Soraya Mafi, a Harewood Young Artist at English National Opera.

Soraya, 28, will spend the money on extra singing lessons with her teacher, Janis Kelly, language tuition and other travel and promotional essentials for a rising opera singer.

You can listen to her here.
