Liza Minnelli is the latest name added to the winners list for this year’s Silver Clef Awards, the annual music awards dinner staged in aid of the Nordoff Robbins charity. Already set to be honoured at the event are Tinie Tempah, Alfie Boe, Status Quo, Annie Lennox and, according to this here press release, Billy Clyro, who I think was that moody looking young Scot on a recent series of ‘Britain’s Got Talent’

Minnelli, presumably, is being honoured for ‘Don’t Drop Bombs’, that hugely underrated 1989 pop classic, and you think I’m being sarcastic here, but you’re wrong. In fact, I’m looking for ‘Losing My Mind’ on Spotify as we speak. Anyway, here’s what Minnelli had to say about the honour: “What a great honour it is to receive this prestigious award. The work of Nordoff Robbins helps so many people, and I am truly delighted to be invited to the Silver Clef Awards this year”.

Minnelli will be getting the Icon Award at the fundraising bash, which takes place in London on 1 Jul.
