Barlow to get music industry honour

Gary Barlow is to be celebrated with an honorary award from the music business.

The singer-songwriter will be the recipient of the annual Music Industry Trusts Award with a charity dinner to recognise his contribution over the past two decades.

It comes just weeks after the Take That star organised a huge concert outside Buckingham Palace for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, and went on to be given an OBE in the Birthday Honours.

The X Factor judge also co-wrote and coordinated the recording of the chart-topping Jubilee song, Sing.

Gary follows in the footsteps of last year's MIT Award winner Jools Holland, while previous winners have included Sir Elton John, Sir Tom Jones and Kylie Minogue.

The 21st annual MIT dinner on November 5 will benefit music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins and the Brit Trust.

David Munns, chairman of the award committee, said of Gary: "He is one of the UK's most accomplished artists - a unique musician, songwriter and producer who embodies both success and distinction, and who serves as a dedicated ambassador for many charities.

"I can't think of another artist who works with both Simon Cowell and Her Majesty The Queen."

Last year's event featured a video message from the Prince Of Wales who praised Jools' work.
