A four-year-old from Clevedon has won an Akademia Music Award for children's music after releasing a song co-written by her mum, Rachel.
The award makes Layla the youngest ever recipient of an Akademia Music award, a US-based award which recognises talent from around the world.
The song, Little One, has also been nominated for three other awards - something her mum is very proud of.
Mrs Mason said: “I love that my daughter is interested in music and that she likes performing and writing songs with me.
"Quite often she will say 'mummy, I have just written a song, please can we go into your studio and record it?'
Throughout lockdown, the family have made a home studio for Layla to perform in.
Layla is also very proud of her award, telling the Times: “I like my award, it is really shiny and I love singing with my Mummy.”
