Take That star Gary Barlow has been given a Music Industry Trusts Award, which is voted for by influential people in the music industry, including record label bosses and musicians

Gary Barlow will receive a Music Industry Trusts Award.

The Take That singer is to be the recipient of the prestigious prize, voted for by influential people in the music industry, including record label bosses and musicians, at a charity dinner in November.

Gary - who helped organise the concert for Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee last month, and is also a judge on the UK version of 'The X Factor' - will be recognised for his contribution to music over the past two decades.

David Munns, chairman of the award committee, said of the songwriter: "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."

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

Last year's MIT Award winner was Jools Holland, while previous winners have included Sir Elton John, Sir Tom Jones and Kylie Minogue.
