The Teenage Cancer Trust Awards in association with Apple Music are statuettes of the shows’ iconic logo designed by world renowned artist Jamie Hewlett. The award will be presented to every artist who has given up their time over the last 18 years to headline for free for Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall, raising many millions for young people with cancer.
Apple Music will host a specially curated playlist, comprising of songs chosen by teenagers, which have helped them get through their cancer journey. Like, 25 year-old, Ammy Harper, who found Frank Turner's 'The Next Storm' helped her when she got diagnosed with brain cancer. She said: "He had always been an artist that stood out to me and the lyrics to that song meant a lot while I was going through treatment. It gave me the determination to get through
Roger Daltrey CBE, Honorary Patron of Teenage Cancer Trust said:
Music has always been at the heart of Teenage Cancer Trust, which makes this collaboration incredibly special. I’m hugely thankful to Brian Rose, who has been an ongoing supporter of the charity for many years, and the rest of Apple Music’s staff for their incredible support
“The annual concerts at the Royal Albert Hall are a highlight in the Teenage Cancer Trust diary, the money they raise and Apple Music’s involvement will play a vital role in making sure the charity can provide specialist support to young people with cancer across the UK."
Massive thank you to everyone who's given their time to perform at these shows!
The shows have played a vital role in helping us provide 28 specialist cancer units and over 60 nursing and support staff in NHS hospitals across the UK.
