Singer songwriter Marc Almond's inspirational message for Edge Hill graduates

SINGER songwriter Marc Almond had some inspirational words for graduating students today as he accepted an Honorary Doctorate in Philosophy, from Edge Hill University. Although he has enjoyed worldwide fame and sold over 30 million records, Marc told graduates that true success comes from self belief, creativity and happiness rather than money or fame.

Marc Almond said:- "Self motivation is the key to success in the artistic or musical field. It's character building and you will need this more than ever in today's competitive world. Success is doing what you love, to be fulfilled by your creativity, to be happy. If success comes, enjoy it, then appreciate it, but most of all be self motivated. Self-belief above all else will do the heavy lifting for you. I feel honoured to be here today receiving such a prestigious award from an esteemed University recognised for its excellence. I was so impressed when I was given a tour of this beautiful campus."

Marc Almond has sold over 30 million records worldwide in a career that has spanned a diverse range of musical styles from the electro of his band Soft Cell to Turkish torch songs to Brazilian Macumba music and Russian folk. In 2010 Marc; who grew up in Southport, celebrated 30 years as a recording artist with a successful tour, culminating in receiving Mojo magazine's 'Hero Award.' He released 3 albums in 2014 and has most recently released the musical anthology Trials Of Eyeliner covering the years 1979 to 2016. His Shadows and Reflections tour is scheduled for October and November 2017.
