Coldplay - Coldplay Land Silver Clef Honour

British rockers Coldplay are to be honoured with a special prize at Britain's Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards next month (Jun13) in recognition of their musical achievements.

The Grammy award-winning group will be presented with the Best British Act Award at the annual prizegiving, which is held to raise money for the charity's scheme to provide music therapy to vulnerable adults and children across the U.K.

Frontman Chris Martin insists receiving the Silver Clef prize means a "huge amount" to the band, adding, "Nordoff Robbins is an organisation that lies very close to our hearts. They provide life-changing music therapy for thousands of people each year and we're humbled to collect this award in their honour."

Nordoff Robbins chairman David Munns praised the band, stating, "Coldplay are one of the British music industry's great successes. They have dominated the British music scene for a decade and their music has influenced a generation."

Several honours will be presented at the London ceremony on 28 June (13), including the Innovation Award to singer/songwriter and record producer Labrinth.
