Rita Ora and Mark Ronson among Silver Clef winners

Pop star Rita Ora, veteran rockers Primal Scream and superproducer Mark Ronson are to be honoured at the 2015 O2 Silver Clef Awards in July (15).

Ora has been named best female, Ronson has won the innovation award, and Bobby Gillespie's band has scooped the 'icon' honour.

The annual awards ceremony, in aid of music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins, will take place in London on 3 July (15).

R.I.P hitmaker Ora says, "It's great to be recognised by Nordoff Robbins, a charity which uses music to transform the lives of so many people", and Ronson adds, "The O2 Silver Clef Awards is an event I've long admired, raising funds for Nordoff Robbins music therapy, a cause which I feel passionate about."

Nordoff Robbins bosses previously announced that Iron Maiden will receive the prestigious O2 Silver Clef Award for outstanding contribution to music, and operatic singers Il Divo will collect the PPL Classical Award.
