Singer Mabel won at the 2020 Brit Awards and reminded the crowd that her mother had won 30 years ago to the very day. 

The artist, who beat Charli XCX, FKA Twigs and others to win Best Female Solo, delivered a touching acceptance speech, in which she remembered her mother Neneh Cherry taking home the trophies for Best International Breakthrough and Best International Solo Artist before she was even born.

Cherry was present at the awards show, which is taking place at London's 02 Arena, and had earlier walked the red carpet alongside her daughter.
