July 22, 2013


BRIT Awards organisers are to launch a new annual honour to celebrate major figures in music, with Sir Elton John announced as the first ever recipient.

The Rocket Man and Your Song star is to be given the Brits Icon Award at a show in September which will be broadcast later by ITV.

The prize - created by the BPI, music industry's trade body - will stand alone from the main Brit Awards.
