I am a great believer that music can be a powerful healing force and I applaud all the fantastic work that Nordoff Robbins has implemented over the past 50 years. I feel I've joined a very special club. It is with great joy that I look forward to being back in the UK for the Silver Clef Awards and for my concert tour in what is my 60th Anniversary year as a recording artist."
