Greek Australian-bred, LA-based multi-platinum singer, songwriter and dance music producer VASSY (real name Vasiliki “Vassy” Karagiorgos) has been honoured with the Billions List Award by APRA AMCOS.

Αccording to themusic.com, the achievement arrives after VASSY hit the milestone of two billion streams of her single Bad, starring David Guetta and Showtek (released in 2014). To celebrate the honour, she performed an acoustic set in an intimate ceremony.

 “It feels so good to be Back in Australia. Thank you, APRA AMCOS, for my Billions Award for Bad reaching the 2 BILLION stream milestone! It was so special to be around my Aussie community,” she commented in a statement.

Last year, VASSY opened for Barbie Girl icons Aqua in the US. The touring slot followed her win of the Future of Dance Award at the Miami Electronic Dance Music Awards, where she was also the first female artist to be crowned with the Icon Award.

Following the epic win, VASSY told Purple Sneakers in an interview, “To be recognised for my art and contribution to the Dance Community by my industry and the fans in the dance space is such a rewarding moment and monumental career highlight.
