RECENT EVENTS - Teenage Cancer Trust: Rizzle Kicks & Labrinth

Sunday 24 March 2013 - 7:30 PM

Rizzle Kicks

Approximate end time 10:35pm

Rizzle Kicks

Rizzle Kicks are the most exciting British pop-rap duo since, well, ever. Their beats satisfy the hip hop faithful who remember the genre's golden age, while their songs pivot on the sort of melodies and hooks that charm pop kids and rap heads alike and bring the charts alive.

Hardly surprising, then, that they have sold over 300,000 albums and over a million singles in under a year. Since the release of their warm up single, Prophet (Better Watch It) in May 2011, they have been unstoppable. Rizzle Kicks are currently working on their second studio album (due for release in summer 2013) with producers including Ant Whiting, Norman Cook and Pharrell Williams.

'We can't wait to play the Royal Albert Hall for Teenage Cancer Trust. It's a charity that means a lot to us and we're happy to be involved and show our support.'

Labrinth

As the multifaceted star of British music, Labrinth has already enjoyed considerable success; his first two singles Let The Sun Shine and Earthquake stormed the top 3, with the latter selling over 550,000 copies.

His debut album, Electronic Earth, establishes the Hackney boy born as a maverick of the UK scene. The wildly eclectic affair, written, produced and performed by Labrinth, features the electronic dance of Last Time, retro-nuevostylings of Express Yourself, jungle-trance-pop melange of Climb Aboard and the grandiose Beneath You're Beautiful, featuring Emeli Sandé on vocals.

Support will come from hugely talented singer songwriter Mahalia: www.facebook.com/mahaliamusic

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for the six young people aged between 13 and 24 diagnosed with cancer every day.  We build specialist units within NHS hospitals bringing young people together to be treated by teenage cancer experts in a place designed just for them. We want every young person with cancer to have access to this specialist support, no matter where they live.

Traditionally treated alongside children or elderly patients at the end of their lives, young people can feel extremely isolated during treatment, some never meeting another young person with cancer. Being treated alongside others their own age can make a huge difference to their whole experience. 

Teenage Cancer Trust also educates young people and health professionals about cancer to ensure a swift diagnosis and referral to specialist support. Cancer in young people is rare but we want young people to know the common signs and symptoms so they can seek medical advice if they are worried. 

We rely solely on donations to fund our vital work.  You can help transform the lives of young people with cancer. Visit www.teenagecancertrust.org to find out how.

Teenage Cancer Trust is a registered charity, no. 1062559 (England and Wales) and SCO39757 (Scotland).
