By Alex Bysouth. Knutsford is set to welcome a twice Grammy award-winning international music artist in the New Year. Pharrell Williams will be the headline act for Cheshire-based charity Faith’s Foundation during their Hollywood Launch Party at Tatton Park, which will take place in February. The N*E*R*D singer-songwriter tops a night including Hollywood Cabaret, music from the Tavares Brothers and a ‘money can’t buy’ auction. “We are delighted to launch the foundation locally and obviously overjoyed to have such an influential and talented star come to headline the event for us,” said Morgan Brown, CEO of Faith’s Foundation. “Pharrell really is the man of the moment and with everything that he has going on at the moment we feel extremely privileged.”
The American has enjoyed success on the global stage with The Neptunes, N*E*R*D and also as a solo artist, before co-founding clothing brands Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream Clothing. Most recently, Pharrell appeared alongside T.I. on Robin Thicke’s number one hit single Blurred Lines and Daft Punk’s Get Lucky, which sold more than 7 million copies last year. Last month the rapper released the world’s first ever 24-hour music video, to Despicable Me 2 collaboration song Happy.
Tickets and VIP packages for the event are still available and can be purchased from faiths-foundation.com or by contacting Morgan at email@example.com Faith’s Foundation is the charity arm of International Football Management Ltd, with its purpose to raise awareness and proceeds through global sporting networks and events. The foundation is named in recognition of Faith Brookes, mother to IFM’s managing director Thomas Brookes, who wanted to give something back in acknowledgment for his mother’s tireless commitment and hard work to charity. Proceeds from the event will go to Bluebell Wood Children‘s Hospice and The UK Stem Cell Foundation.
