Robbie Williams has been announced as a recipient for Outstanding Contribution to Music Award at next year's BRIT Awards. The ex-member of boyband Take That will be handed the special prize at a ceremony which will take place on February 16 at London's Earls Court.
"Robbie is one of the outstanding artists and performers of his generation," Ged Doherty, chairman of The BRITs Committee, praised Robbie. "It will be an absolute thrill to have him at the Brits 30th anniversary show receiving the 'Outstanding Contribution' award. We are delighted."
Previous musicians who got the special honor at the annual event included Sir Paul McCartney, David Bowie and Pet Shop Boys. Robbie Williams himself has collected multiple trophies at the show. After three years in hiatus, he is now prepping to release a comeback studio album "Reality Killed the Video Star" in November.
