Best Live Act Award

Post by jarkko » Thu Jun 06, 2013 8:51 am

I'm the PR for music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins

I'm emailing to let you know that Leonard Cohen is in the Top 30 shortlist for the Best Live Act Award at the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards.

This is a public vote so you can help Leonard Cohen to win by encouraging fellow fans to vote for him. It's really easy to vote on Nordoff Robbins’ website http://www.nordoff-robbins.org.uk/bestliveact and we would be really grateful if you would share news of the vote on Twitter, Facebook and your website.

We are using #BestLiveAct so a suggested tweet could be:
Leonard Cohen is shortlisted for the @nordoffrobbins1 #BestLiveAct Award at this year’s #O2SilverClefs vote for him here http://bit.ly/18emvnY.

We are lucky enough to be working with Ticketmaster, O2, Spotify, the Evening Standard, Kerrang! Radio and qthemusic.com who are all helping spread the word.

The vote is live now and closes on 17 June 2013. The winner will be announced at the O2 Silver Clef Awards on Friday 28 June 2013.

All those who vote will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win a £500 Ticketmaster giftcard or 4 VIP tickets to a concert at the O2 (subject to availability).

Please visit our website http://www.nordoff-robbins.org.uk/bestliveact to read more about how the shortlist was compiled.

Thanks very much for your support. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Best wishes,
Liam.

My vote is in! I think Gary Barlow is fantastic!

Just joking.

You can only vote once but I will be making sure that the rest of my household add their votes.

Mine too!

Gary who?

Only kidding :-)
I heard of a man who says words so beautifully that if he only speaks their name women give themselves to him.

A vote a minute - ohhh, that could lead to some pretty bad compulsive behaviour.

Gwen, I haven't seen the photo contest - can you post a link for it.

I voted yesterday. Not because I am a numb-blind-dumb fanatic. But because it is true. I did not feel the surge to write it here, but I am a bit supertitious and I did not like the number 13. So. After all if some did not put it in elevators...


Lady Gaga was up to Leonard Cohen. :neutral: :oops:

I'm not sure if this was really live, but maybe they will win ex aequo.
