Fergie has been crowned Woman Of The Year by a US magazine.

Fergie will be given the Billboard magazine honour on December 2 at a ceremony in New York.

The only female member of the Black Eyed Peas said she was "humbled" to accept the award and called it a "great career achievement".

The honour pays tribute to a trailblazing female artist and her accomplishments.

Though Fergie's only solo album was 2006's multi-platinum The Dutchess, she has continued to sell out venues and score hits with the Black Eyed Peas.

They have a new CD, The Beginning, out next month.

Previous Billboard Woman Of The Year honourees include Beyonce, Ciara and Reba McEntire.

Before long, others will recognise the merit of this idea and lend their support. It will be especially helpful to get the approval of an educational leader. Making resources more readily available to the public is a worthwhile mission. You especially enjoy seeing children benefit from your hard work. Thanks to you, they'll have better opportunities for advancement.More
