Speech Debelle, 26, saw off critics favourites Florence + The Machine and Bat For Lashes to scoop the 20,000 Barclaycard Mercury Music Prize for her debut album. Speech, real name Corynne Elliot, took her mother, Marilyn Dennis, to last nights ceremony at the Grosvenor House hotel. She now lives with her mum in Mitcham, but Speech had left home at 19 after family rows over her drug-taking and spent the next few years sleeping in hostels and on friends sofas. Many of the songs from her album, Speech Therapy, come from that time and deal with her homelessness, a dying friend, her father who left when she was seven, brushes with crime and dead-end jobs. After accepting her award, Speech thanked her mother, saying she was her backbone. She said: This means a lot to me because its an award judges give solely on the strength of the album. Before they said my name I had a moment of doubt, I thought, What if I dont win? What about all the people who supported me? Then they announced my name and I didnt have time to react, I was being mobbed.
