A few weeks ago, Lani pulled through to perform and receive Billboard’s “Rule Breaker” award at its Women in Music 2017 ceremony.

The rising R&B singer then stepped on stage to perform her latest release “Honey” while supported by nothing more than an acoustic guitar. The beautifully raw delivery resonated with the crowd and highlighted her delicate vocals. When the song reached its end, Cannon returned to present her with her award. “I’m so stoked to put this on my desk,” Kehlani admitted, before revealing her long-standing connections to Canon. “He’s literally the reason I’m here right now,” she recalled how he told her if she finished high school he would let her record at his studio in Los Angeles and help set her up with an apartment. “This is my guardian angel,” she said.
