Emeli Supports Nordoff Robbins
In the run up to the Nordoff Robbin’s Music Therapy’s annual Scottish Music Awards, Scottish soul-pop sensation Emeli Sandé has announced her support of the charity’s latest fundraising appeal to open a new facility in her hometown of Aberdeen.
Nordoff Robbins is hoping to open from a dedicated music therapy service in Aberdeen, where the unique power of music would be harnessed to help improve the lives of children and adults isolated by life limiting illnesses, disability and trauma including autism, dementia and Down’s Syndrome.
“Music is unbelievably powerful,” said Emeli, who has been a supporter of the charity for a number of years. “It crosses barriers, opens the mind, moves the body and stirs the soul. It changes lives.
“Hundreds of children and adults in the north east are living with serious health conditions which make every day a new challenge. I know that Nordoff Robbins Scotland could make a huge difference to their lives.”
