Plan B appointed ambassador for Big Music Project

Plan B Big Music ProjectBrit award winner Plan B has been named as youth ambassador for the Big Music Project.

The singer songwriter, who is also behind the Each One Teach One charity, will appear at national events in Glasgow, London, Cardiff and Belfast to take part in Q&As and give careers advice on succeeding in the music business.

The Big Music Project is a year-long initiative aimed at helping young people aged 15-24 develop the confidence and skills to enhance their future employment prospects.

Plan B said: ‘The Big Music Project is all about young people, their love of music and the opportunity to do something positive to change their lives for the better.

‘Across the whole of the UK there are people with skills and talent who don’t know where to go next – and it’s not easy figuring out how to take an idea you love and make it your reality, your business, and your career. I believe that through the Big Music Project and Each One Teach One we can help young people take big steps towards a big future.’

Other artists to have voiced their support for the initiative include Will Kennard from Chase and Status, chart-topping boyband Lawson and Foxes.

Global Radio’s Capital FM and the BPI are joining forces with youth work charity UK Youth to set up the initiative.
