Celebrated singer-songer writer Marlon Roudette will be performing at the 2016 Laureus World Sports Awards in Berlin, which will be broadcast in 160 countries.
A massive star in Germany, where he has had three No.1 hits, Marlon’s 2011 single New Age spent eight weeks at the top of the German singles chart.
He will be appearing in front of a star-studded audience of celebrities from the worlds of sport, entertainment, business and fashion at the Laureus Awards Ceremony which will take place at the Messe Berlin Palais am Funkturm on the evening of Monday, April 18.
Last year Marlon had his first UK top ten hit with When the Beat Drops Out, which featured distinctive steel pan drum rhythms which reflected his life to date, split between the United Kingdom and the Caribbean island of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
Also attending as an Award Presenter will be model, TV host and philanthropist Petra Nemcova. She was in Thailand when the 2004 Tsunami struck. Her fiancé drowned and she suffered a broken pelvis and had to wait for eight hours to be rescued. As a result she founded the Happy Hearts Fund charity which rebuilds safe, resilient schools in areas impacted by natural disasters.
