Prix de la comédie musicale Pour Six

The musical award went to Six, written by Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage

« Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived, » is mnemonic many British schoolchildren learn to help them remember the fates of Henry VIII’s six wives. But they are often remembered just for that, as part of the king’s power politics. Six lets the wives do the talking and tell their stories. And it’s attracted huge audiences in the West End, on Broadway and touring in the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.

Prix de la chanson pour Black

Visionary Award pour le chanteur Dave

The song award went to Dave for « Black », from his Number 1 album Psychodrama, which won the Mercury Prize and Brit Awards best album. « Black » came out of Dave’s frustration of hearing about a single black experience, ignoring all the different lives lived by black people in the UK and further afield:
« Look, black is beautiful, black is excellent
Black is pain, black is joy, black is evident »
