Steve Angello Honored with a Prestigious Award for Charity Work

Posted at April 6th, 2016 | by Supreet.cheema | in

It’s good to see our favorite dance music artists to give back more than music to society. And there are many DJs/Producers who might not know are spinning for a cause and do deserve to be honored for the same. The Swedish legend Steve Angello is one of them. Devoted father and musician has always tried to contribute to and lift up the lives of others. He also runs a charity named Size Foundation which focuses on helping children in impoverished communities receive the education that they deserve.

A great example of his kindness came last year when he donated $5K to a young girl in need of liver transplant after her father asked Steve on Instagram. To honor of his charitable nature, MTV awarded him with their Latin American MTV Chiuku award, which is given to artists who use their position in society to address humanitarian issues that many would otherwise not think twice about.

I feel very happy and honoured to receive an award for something that usually goes unnoticed. Being recognised for our work means a lot to us and everything we do is to help others improve their lives. MTV has given us a powerful voice and together we can make a positive difference in the world! Again, we thank you. We really appreciate the support!” Steve Angello
