Arizona-raised violinist Lindsey Stirling claimed her second Billboard Music Awards honor for the best dance/electronic album.
Stirling’s latest album, “Brave Enough” came out ahead of “Cloud Nine” by “Kygo,” “Skin” by “Flume,” and two albums by “The Chainsmokers.” She was also nominated for best dance/electronic artist, an award that was given to “The Chainsmokers.”

“Brave Enough” debuted atop the Billboard dance/electronic album chart and peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200.
In 2010, Stirling first came into the spotlight by appearing on the reality show “America’s Got Talent” and has since grown her fame on YouTube, where she will be featured in the YouTube Red documentary project.
In 2013, she appeared in an “I’m a Mormon” video for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her fame has grown in leaps and bounds since then.
Stirling has an impressive resume of performances, including a national anthem for the 49ers, and Billboard Music Awards appearances last year with Celine Dion and in 2015 with Wiz Khalifa to honor the late actor Paul Walker.
