Paloma Faith To Play American Express Platinum Cashback Gig On The 3rd Of March 2013

Platinum-selling recording artist Paloma Faith will play a stripped back and acoustic set at the first ever 'American Express Platinum Cashback Gig' at the iconic Union Chapel in London on Sunday 3 March at 7pm.

In celebration of the generous cashback rewards earned with its Platinum Cashback Cards, American Express is staging this intimate show with a difference. All ticketholders attending the 750 capacity gig will be given their 'cashback' on the £30 ticket price in the form of a £30 American Express Gift Card© which they can then choose to keep or donate to international charity, War Child to help continue their work overseas.

The intimate gig comes in the middle of Paloma Faith's  'Fall To Grace' Tour and hot on the heels her second album, Fall To Grace, which secured her position among the leading British female vocalists. Fall To Grace was certified platinum by the British Phonographic Industry in late 2012, making it the singer's second album to achieve the coveted platinum status. The album, preceded by Top 10 hit 'Picking Up The Pieces,' peaked at number 2 on the UK album chart and earned Faith two Brit Award nominations for British Female Solo Artist and British Album Of The Year.

Paloma Faith says: "I started out singing in cabaret clubs and believe there is no better way to connect with people through my music than performing live. The Platinum Cashback Gig is a really interesting concept from American Express and War Child plays such an important role making a real difference in the world today so hopefully we can make areal difference at Union Chapel."

All money collected on the night, along with an additional £10,000 which American Express is donating, will help War Child continue its work of providing life-changing support to the most vulnerable children whose families, communities and schools have been torn apart by war. War Child's projects deliver protection, education and a better future to children hit hardest by war.

Ben Knowles, Director of Fundraising at War Child says: "Music is crucial in helping War Child raise awareness of issues facing children in war and the money to do something about it. We are excited to be working with Paloma Faith and American Express as part of the Platinum Cashback Gig. Each £30 could help get one of the children we work with back to school for an entire year. That is a life-saving, life-changing impact - giving a child the hope and skills to build a better future for themselves. We're looking forward to what promises to be a great night."

Tickets for the American Express Platinum Cashback Gig are on sale now
