London, June 2022: Nordoff Robbins, the UK's largest music therapy charity, is pleased to announce the winners of its much-loved O2 Silver Clefs Awards which is back for 2022. Peter Gabriel, Frankie Valli, Becky Hill, Kano and Tems are amongst some of this year's winners, with Peter Gabriel winning the coveted O2 Silver Clef Award; the legendary Frankie Valli of the Four Seasons being honoured with the Icon Award; and Jools Holland OBE receiving the accolade for Outstanding Achievement.

The star-studded award ceremony honouring artists from across the music industry will take place at Grosvenor House on July 1st. Nordoff Robbins' O2 Silver Clef Awards are held to recognise and celebrate the talent of the winning artists who touch the lives of people through their music. The annual event raises vital funds for Nordoff Robbins. This enables its trained music therapists to support some of the most vulnerable people in the UK including children and adults affected by life limiting illness such as dementia, learning disabilities including Autism, physical disability, and mental health issues.

The last event in 2019 raised a record £1million for Nordoff Robbins and since 1976 the awards have raised over £11 million for the charity's life changing music therapy and honoured some of the greatest names in music. Nordoff Robbins believes that everyone should have access to the value of music. Its trained music therapists work with children and adults affected by life limiting illness such as dementia, learning disabilities including Autism, physical disability and mental health issues. Through the power of music, trained therapists connect with some of the most isolated people in our society. Nordoff Robbins' music therapists work with over 270 schools, hospitals, hospices and care homes, as well as providing sessions from its centres across the UK.

Hosted with O2, the annual lunch is one of the highlights of the music industry's calendar, bringing together artists, celebrity supporters and influencers to raise vital funds for the music therapy charity. Returning after a two-year break due to the pandemic, the awards will deliver a huge fundraising boost to Nordoff Robbins thanks to table sales, sponsorship and special auctions on the day, enabling its music therapists to support some of the most vulnerable people in the UK.

Presented by Edith Bowman for the fourth year running, with Peter Andre covering the blue carpet celebrity arrivals, the awards recognise and celebrate the powerful impact of music on all members of our society.

Sandra Schembri, CEO of Nordoff Robbins said: "We can't wait to honour such a range of talented artists and welcome everyone back to this incredibly special event. This year's ceremony will be the first to be staged since 2019 where we raised a record-breaking £1 million, and we hope this will be our biggest fundraising event yet.

"Like many other charities, Nordoff Robbins' income has been decimated over the past two years. Despite this, we have continued our work with vulnerable and isolated children and adults as our services are needed now more than ever. Our vision is clear; we see music as a superpower. Music can connect everyone with their human potential and dignity regardless of profound disability, illness or society excluding them. With support from the incredibly generous music industry, we can come together to help make music a part of the lives of those who struggle to access what we know to be true; music matters and we can truly come alive through music."
