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

Birmingham UK poised for one of it’s biggest nights of the year as the Inspiration Awards hits town on a night of inspiration and celebration.

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.

Why England Fans singing ‘Swing Low’ Negro spiritual should not bother anyone!

We live in an age where you need to little to cause offence to someone else. In fact one would almost be forgiven for thinking that there is little one can honestly say that will not offend someone somewhere in the media or even in everyday life. You can blame this on the fact that we become a more clued up and aware society, or you can put it down to the simple fact that people these days are far more fragile take almost everything to heart and cannot stomach any type of critique or disagreement, so everyone has to stay in the safe zone of ‘Political correctness’. Whatever your thoughts I believe that England rugby fans chanting (As they do) Swing Low sweet Chariot’ to spur on the England Rugby team at games is no reason for anyone to get their ‘Knickers in a twist’ about.

The Great Al Jarreau dies.

Another musical great passes as Al Jarreau dies at 76. We have had to get used to great talents falling away in the last few years, but in truth we have to wonder if any of these great ones can even remotely be replaced.
