Earlier in the year Horus Music was announced as winners of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade for Outstanding Short Term Growth.
On Friday the 20th of October 2017, Horus Music was presented with the award in a ceremony in Leicester city centre.
We were delighted to have the award granted by H.M. Lord-Lieutenant, Lady Gretton, who kindly attended the ceremony and greeted the Horus Music staff, some of whom had travelled from India to take part.
At the beginning of the ceremony, Lady Gretton congratulated us on our ability to offer musicians and record labels from around the world, a simple and affordable solution for getting their music in front of wider audiences. At Horus Music, we work with over 200 music download and streaming platforms in order to provide as many opportunities as possible for clients to earn an income from their music, while retaining full control and ownership of their music at all times.
During the Ceremony
As we specialise in global music distribution, we thought it would only be appropriate to include some World Music during the ceremony, that’s where the DMU Gospel Choir came in. The incredibly talented DMU Gospel Choir treated us to a collection of classic Gospel songs, ranging from traditional African Gospel songs, to popular hits such as Ain’t No Sunshine and (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher. Staff and guests were captivated during the Choir’s performance and were ecstatic to hear such wonderful and raw music.
During the ceremony, our CEO Nick Dunn spoke about how he’d previously attended music industry talks and used this knowledge to build Horus Music from the ground up and train his employees. He also expressed how he never expected that he’d receive such a prestigious award as the Queen’s Award for Enterprise when he founded Horus Music. Nick also expressed how grateful he was to all of the staff and clients for being a part of his journey.
This truly was a fantastic event which allowed us to reflect on the success we’ve enjoyed during the past 11 years. We can’t wait to see what the next chapter holds.
