Sir Tim Rice to collect music award

Sir Tim Rice, who has been behind musical stage hits such as Evita and Jesus Christ Superstar, is to be honoured for his contribution to music at a respected music industry awards bash.

The writer and lyricist follows figures such as Bryan Ferry, Ray Davies and last year's recipient John Lydon in being awarded the "Icon" award by US music rights body Broadcast Music Inc (BMI).

The award is presented to to songwriters who have had "a unique and indelible influence on generations of music makers" and Sir Tim will collect the honour at a gala dinner on October 13 at London's Dorchester Hotel in Park Lane.

He worked with Andrew Lloyd Webber on a number of musicals, as well as Abba songwriters Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson on Chess and Sir Elton John on The Lion King.

Sir Tim, who has shared in three best song Oscars, said: "I owe it all to Tommy Steele, Lonnie Donegan, Billy Fury, Marty Wilde, Cliff Richard and Joe Brown."

BMI president and CEO Michael O'Neill said: "Sir Tim Rice's extraordinary creativity has given the world some of the most beloved songs of the past 50 years, sheer musical poetry that has thrilled audiences in films, musical theatre and on chart-topping recordings."
