As announced last month, Kim was one of the artists to be honoured with this award. A reception at the London Savoy hotel was organised by BASCA, the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers & Artists. Founded in 1974, the BASCA Gold Badge Awards recognise exceptional people from right across the music industry who have worked in support of British songwriters and composers.
This morning, Kim announced she was on her way to the reception together with her brother Ricky.
