LONDON (AP) — Gary Barlow says he's "flattered" to receive the 21st Music Industry Trusts Award in recognition of his work with British music and charities.
The singer, songwriter and producer — who also serves as a judge on the U.K. version of "The X Factor" — was honored Monday in London at a dinner held to benefit charities Nordoff Robbins and the BRIT Trust.
Barlow, perhaps best known as a member of the band Take That, said receiving the award is "amazing" but added, "I've visited the schools that are benefiting from tonight, and they're incredible places and they need help and they need funding, so that's the real reason we're here."
Past recipients of the award include Sir Elton John and Kylie Minogue.
