Michael Buble to pick up Silver Clef award

Michael Buble will receive the international prize at this year’s O2 Silver Clef Awards.

The Canadian singer will pick up the Raymond Weil International Award at the ceremony at London’s Hilton Park Lane on June 29 and he says he’s thrilled with the news.

He said: ’’I’m thrilled to accept it, and I cannot wait to attend this wonderful event.’’

The event is held in aid of music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins and other winners this year include Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber, who will receive a lifetime achievement award, which will be presented to him by Jessie J.

Andrew – who worked with Jessie 11 years ago when he cast her in his musical ‘Whistle Down the Wind’ – said: ‘’It will be fantastic to see Jessie J again. I’m looking forward to celebrating with her and all the other winners.’’

David Munns, chairman of Nordoff Robbins, said: ‘’Andrew Lloyd Webber is simply nothing less than a global musical legend. Having devoted his life to the arts, he is responsible for creating some of the most beautiful and unforgettable music of our time – and has been one of the UK’s most generous philanthropists.’’
