Silver Clef marks Kylie's 25 years
Kylie Minogue is to pick up a special prize at the O2 Silver Clef Awards to mark her 25 years in music.
The pop princess - celebrating a quarter of a century since her first single - will be honoured at the annual ceremony which recognises top music acts.
The event - in aid of music therapy charity Nordoff Robbins - is being staged at the London Hilton next Friday.
Kylie said she was "thrilled and honoured" to be chosen for the award.
"This will be a special event and I am delighted to be able to attend and reunite with many friends too," she said.
Other recipients of prizes at this year's event include Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jessie J and Michael Buble.
David Munns, chairman of Nordoff Robbins, said: "Kylie Minogue is a legend and also an international treasure. Her success across the music industry has been meteoric from the start and she is the obvious choice for our unique 25th Anniversary O2 Silver Clef Award."
