Tom Jones will receive the 2014 Silver Clef Award from the Nordoff Robbins charity for the second time. He joins Eric Clapton, Annie Lennox, Take That, the Who as two-time winners.

The 73-year-old Welsh singer is being honored for his nearly half-century career as a performer, going “from strength to strength, sustaining his popularity as a live performer and recording artist for more than four decades. He has lent his voice to every form of popular music from gospel to country and from dance to rock, selling over 100 million records in the process.” Jones previously received the award in 2001.

Sarah Edge, director of Sony Mobile U.K., said “Sir Tom Jones is a living legend, not only has his music brought pleasure to many people, he has also used his music and influence to benefit many charities over the years. We are honoured to present him with the Sony Mobile Lifetime Achievement Award.”

Jones said of the award “To be presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award is a great honour, and to be included amongst the other fantastically talented artists is a real pleasure.”

Also receiving awards this year are Giorgio Moroder (Innovation Award), Pharrell Williams (International Award), Paloma Faith (Best British Act), Laura Mvula (Jack Daniels Best Newcomer Award), Chas & Dave (Investec Icon Award) and Gareth Malone (Classical Award). The awards will be presented on July 4 in London.

Nordoff Robbins is Britain’s leading provider of music therapy services in the U.K.
