The Prize

Don't miss your chance to have the Nashville's country soul star Yola record a video performance just for you! 

You will have the opportunity to choose a song from a pre-selected list and Yola will create an amazing rendition of your selection. 

It will be up to the artist how they wish to record the performance,  making this a creative and bespoke offering from each artist to their  loyal fan-base.

Yolanda Quartey - aka Yola - released her acclaimed debut album in February 2019, establishing herself as the queen of country soul from the very first note. The album won supporters from The New York Times to Vogue and accolades including Rolling Stone’s Artist You Need To Know and NPR Music’s Artist To Watch in 2019, who said Yola is "an artist sure to stun audiences for years to come." 

Yola joins Annie Lennox by standing in solidarity with The Circle's fundraising appeal to support some of the world’s most vulnerable women and girls. The Circle has long been there for the world’s most vulnerable women and will continue to do so at a time of even greater urgency.

  • The recording of the performance and all copies of it will remain the property of the Artist at all times.
  • The winner will be granted a non-exclusive licence to use the recording for the winner’s own personal, private, non-commercial use.
  • The winner shall not be entitled to use the recording for advertising or promotional purposes.
  • The winner shall not post the recording on social media.
  • The licence granted to the winner may be terminated by the Artist if the winner fails to comply with these conditions. 

 

The Cause

The Circle, founded by Annie Lennox in 2008, brings together women from all walks of life so that they can learn about the injustices and inequality facing many millions of women and girls around the globe, inspire, be inspired and ultimately take action to bring about change.

They believe in a world where women and girls are empowered, self-reliant, and able to influence the decisions that affect their lives.

They campaign and advocate for equal opportunities and the ability to realise fundamental rights, raise funds to support women's rights and work in partnership with like-minded organisations which are already doing exceptional work.

The Circle to date has supported over 160,000 women and girls in more than 16 countries.  This has been done through using the income raised by the women members of The Circle and through the advocacy work they have undertaken such as publishing reports on the implementation of the Maputo Protocol in Kenya and the fundamental right to a Living Wage in the garment industry.  

The Circle's vision is equality for women and girls in a fairer world.

Funds from this auction will support The Circle’s emergency Covid appeal.
