An incredibly versatile artist, Sting has sold over 100 million records as a solo artist and as a member of The Police. He has received more than 16 Grammy awards for his work, and countless other plaudits including an Oscar nomination. His song Every Breath You Take is one of the most played records in history.
As an actor Sting has appeared in many films, TV productions and on Broadway. For over 25 years he has been an active humanitarian, supporting Amnesty International and establishing the Rainforest Foundation with his wife Trudie Styler. Sting has supported Future Talent since its inception.
“I am very aware that there are countless thousands of musically talented children across the UK. Many of them have dreams of becoming the musicians of the future, but lacking guidance and support, they have little idea as to how they can turn those dreams into reality. I passionately support the work of Future Talent and it’s commitment to help children define and then hopefully achieve their musical goals; to realise that all barriers to these goals are artificial and that the world of music is their birthright. By becoming a Patron I have pledged myself as an advocate and a friend.” (Sting CBE)
