Coldplay frontman Chris Martin claims he feels 'humbled' and 'honoured' after he was named the Royal Albert Hall Best British Act at the 2013 Nordoff Robbins Silver Clef Awards.

The 'Viva La Vida' has spoken of his admiration for the work the Nordoff Robbins organisation does, using art and music to run therapy sessions across the UK for a variety of groups. Martin describes Nordoff Robbins as 'life changing'.

"It means a huge amount to us to be named 'Best British Act' by Nordoff Robbins at the 2013 O2 Silver Clef Awards," says Martin in a statement.

"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."

The band will collect their award at the London event, which takes place at the London Hilton hotel on 28 June, 2013.

Chris Martin's work has not only been praised by Nordoff Robbins, with wife Gwyneth Paltrow also speaking highly of her husbands work recently.

"I never place demands on him because I think he’s a really talented man and he’s putting something good into the world," she said in a recent interview with Glamour magazine.
