She said: "A few years ago, I performed at a Nordoff Robbins event which was raising funds for their music therapy work, so it's a real pleasure to be back supporting this charity again through the O2 Silver Clef Awards. 

"Music is my life, so I can't think of a better charity to be supporting than one which uses music to enrich the lives of others. I can't wait to be there on the day to receive this award!"
