Louis Tomlinson listed in the Debrett’s 500 most influential people
January 20th, 2017: It was announced today that Louis Tomlinson has made it to the Debrett’s list of Britain most influential people. Debrett’s is a recognised authority on British etiquette, influence and achievement. Initially published by John Debrett under the name of The Peerage in 1769, it has branched out now to include several publications such as the Guide for the Modern Gentleman, Debrett’s Wedding Guide and Debrett’s Handbook.
In the last three years the Debrett has published in the The Sunday Times the Debrett’s 500, a list of the 500 most influential people across several different sectors in the UK. The nominations come from panels of specialists in sectors such as Advertising, Music, Business, Fashion, Politics, and Science, which are then evaluated for acceptance into the list. The individuals that make the list are selected based on the premise that they are individuals that “inspire, influence and instigate change beyond expectation”. Therefore, these individuals are expected to have had and are projected to continue having profound impact in their fields.
Louis Tomlinson, on hiatus with One Direction, has been working on solo projects during this past year. These include his work with a girl band rumored to be called “Did Alice call?” through the label Triple String and his collaboration with Steve Aoki, which resulted in their first single Just Hold On, launched last month. Louis has also been a prolific song writer throughout his years with One Direction, penning many of the band’s successful hits. In addition, Louis’s involvement in charity work with his mum Johannah Deakin, until her passing last month, has benefitted many different charities and individuals throughout the years.
