Jessie J and Lloyd Webber reunion

The Voice's Jessie J is to be reunited with the man who gave her an early stage break, Andrew Lloyd Webber, by presenting him with a top music award.

The composer is to receive a Lifetime Achievement prize at the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clef Awards next month.

Jessie was 11-years-old when she was discovered by Lloyd Webber and appeared in his West End production, Whistle Down The Wind.

The singer is also due to pick up a prize at the awards event, being staged at the London Hilton on June 29.

Jessie will collect the best British act prize at the annual event which raises money for the Nordoff Robbins music therapy charity.

Lloyd Webber - who is looking for the star of a new production of Jesus Christ Superstar with a TV talent hunt - said of his award: "It will be fantastic to see Jessie J again and I'm looking forward to celebrating with her and all the other award winners in June."

Nordoff Robbins has 60 therapists providing music therapy services to 100 organisations across the UK.
