A new award is being launched to honour a major recording artist for their outstanding contributions to humanity and promotion of human rights through music.
Likened to a "Nobel Prize Of Music", the High Note Music Prize will be presented by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights during the High Note Honors Concert, which is being produced by Kilimanjaro Live in association with The High Note Project, a global social justice initiative being launched by a founding committee of prominent entertainment executives.
The new, annual event will take place in London in autumn 2018 and will be broadcast worldwide.
Kilimanjaro Live founder and CEO Stuart Galbraith (pictured) said: “We’re both pleased and proud to have been selected as the promoter of The High Note Honors Concert, which will be a significant global event for music and the artists of our time that are passionate about making a difference in the lives of others."
Proceeds from The High Note Concert will benefit the High Note Music Prize winner’s favorite social justice charity as well as the United Nations Human Rights Office and the Grammy Museum.
During the broadcast, The High Note Music Prize winner’s favorite human rights cause will be highlighted, as well as promoted via a global Cause Flash social-media campaign that aims to reach over one billion people.
The High Note Project is a global music initiative created by global philanthropic producer David Clark, who also worked with President Nelson Mandela to create and launch the 46664 world-wide HIV/AIDS Human Rights campaign in 2002.
