For anyone who has seen Harry Styles live in concert, whether as part of the top band One Direction or as a solo artist, there is no denying the man belongs on the stage. His voice, his presence and his incomparable ability to connect with the crowd gives fans and concert goers an experience like no other, and if you have ever read a review of one of his shows you will see that it includes just as much of his antics and banter as it does about his singing.
So, it would probably come as no surprise that Styles is this years winner of the Silver Clef award for best live act. It is the only award in the series to be voted on by the public, and Styles won with 60% of the vote over acts including Ed Sheeran and Adele. Acts in the running toured between March 2017 and March 2018.
The ceremony, which raises money for music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins, took place July 6 in London.
This title is nothing new to Harry, who won in 2013 and 2016 as part of One Direction.
Andrew Parsons, a spokesman for Ticketmaster, one of the award sponsors, had this to say about Styles, “Harry Styles is a global sensation who won the hearts of many in One Direction and continues to do so in his solo career, so it’s not surprising that he has earned the title of Best Live Act. It’s great to see such support for the British star after his record-breaking debut album and world tour – this award is thoroughly deserved.”
We agree. It is deserved!
