The ICC in Birmingham will host the Birmingham Inspiration Awards and Top UK Model 2017 finals on Saturday Nov 11th

On Saturday the 11h of November at the Birmingham ICC something quite special is about to take place.  The Birmingham Inspiration Awards.  What makes this event all the more interesting and powerful is that is ‘by the people for the people’.  I am sure many of the big media moguls and businesses are scratching their heads wondering, how did this get so big and slip right under our radar for so long?  How was something like this done and we did not do it?  The basic truth of the matter is that something like this can rarely be done by the super big boys or the media moguls like ‘Simon Cowell’.  These types of events need to be thought out and brought to life by Mavericks not tied down to the same rules as everyone else (Commerical constraints and TV schedules).  That is the only way something a little different can be done and that is the way the Birmingham Inspiration Awards has come about.

If you like millions of others still remember Princess Diana, why? What makes this woman so special that 20 years after her death she is still our favourite Princess?

The UK is still reeling from the events of Grenfell Tower.  Several artists have produced tracks in tribute to those who lost their lives in this tragedy.  The latest artist to wade into these sensitive waters is urban poet, singer and songwriter Stephan Dante.  Her song ‘Grenfell Lament’ is a powerful yet heart-wrenching poem come song with a classical background sweetened with a smidgen of gospel.
