Music charity Nordoff Robbins celebrated its annual O2 Silver Clef Awards on Friday, June 29, which raised over £430,000 to go towards the organization’s vital work transforming the lives of vulnerable people through music.
The annual event sees the music industry come together to celebrate the best of the music scene in a star-studded awards ceremony. Guests are treated to a sumptous 3-course lunch and an exciting auction of exclusive and on-off music related items. The star item this year was a Hofner bass guitar signed by Sir Paul McCartney which raised a whopping £40,000 in the auction!
“I am thrilled and honoured to be receiving the 25th Anniversary O2 Silver Clef Award from Nordoff Robbins,” said Kylie. “The work that Nordoff Robbins does, using music therapy to transform the lives of vulnerable children and adults is amazing. This will be a special event and I am delighted to be able to attend and reunite with many friends too.”
“Receiving my award at the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef lunch is such an honour,” added Jessie J. “The work they do, using music therapy to transform the lives of vulnerable children & adults is quite literally amazing and lies close to my heart. It’s also such a huge an honor to be receiving my award on the same night that Andrew is receiving his Sony Mobile Lifetime Achievement Award. We go back a long way you know!
