The Sussex hip hop & blues musician scooped up the Brit Critics' Choice Award for 2017, following in the footsteps of Adele, Jessie J, Florence and the Machine, and Tom Odell.
The singer's debut album is due to be released in February and in May he will be headlining The Great Escape in Brighton.
His current single Human was a major hit in Europe before reaching the UK. It was propelled into the UK's top 40 last week.
Rag"n"Bone Man, real name Rory Graham, got involved with AudioActive through Brighton hip hop night SlipJam, which was one of his earliest stage performances and introduction to the scene and is run by AudioActive's Project Manager and rapper Tom Hines (Hinesy Hines).
He also supported the charity's work through guest artist appearances in their projects and performing at young people's music events such as In The Lab.
Rag"n"Bone Man is the second Patron for the charity, following British hip hop duo Rizzle Kicks (Jordan Stephens and Harley Alexander-Sule), who were also involved with the charity from a young age.
The innovative charity has been nurturing talent across the South East since 2004 and has been making waves with projects such as Sessions and current Electric Youth Ensemble.
Adam Joolia, Director, AudioActive says:
"Rory clearly is a very special person. It speaks volumes that someone with such a great talent and busy career still manages to make the time to be so generous in their support of our work."
