Ozzy Osbourne has teamed up with the Midland Metro to celebrate BBC Music Day.BBC Music Day is a U.K.-wide annual celebration of music that aims to unite communities and generations through their love of music. The theme for this year's BBC Music Day is the power of music — to bring people together, to enhance feelings of well-being and to create unforgettable memories. It will be broadcast across BBC Radio and BBC Local Radio and BBC Television and this year will take place on June 15. On that day, Music Day Ambassador Ozzy Osbourne will provide the passenger announcements for people travelling on the Birmingham-to-Wolverhampton tram. Rebecca Sandiford, the producer of BBC Music Day, said: "BBC Music Day aims to unite generations and communities through their love of music, so we thought we'd give commuters a reason to smile as they make their daily journeys." Ozzy said: "When I was young, music was all that mattered to me. As a teenager, I was caught in the magical spell of THE BEATLES and that was all it took. I was gone. Music is still magic to me. It runs through my head all day long and I would never ever want that to stop. "Being named one of 2017's Music Day Ambassadors was an unexpected and wonderful honour. "Music has given me such an incredible life so a special day that celebrates this, like BBC Music Day, is better than Christmas to me." Colin Saward, general manager of National Express Midland Metro, said: "Ozzy already has a Midland Metro tram named after him, and he launched our Birmingham city centre extension last year. So it's great to have the Prince of Darkness back as the voice of our trams on BBC Music Day." Coun Richard Worrall, chair of the West Midlands Combined Authority transport delivery committee, said: "I am delighted Ozzy Osbourne has agreed to continue his association with the Midland Metro and I am sure passengers will enjoy hearing his voice. "The Metro has seen nearly eight million users in the last twelve months and passenger satisfaction levels are amongst the highest in the country, so Ozzy's star quality is certainly in good company."
