Tony Bennett is to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award.

The 83-year-old legendary singer will be given the title at this year's O2 Silver Clef Awards and the presentation of the prestigious prize coincides with his 60th anniversary as a recording artist.

This is the 35th year of the annual music industry honours which aim to raise money for charity Nordoff Robbins - which aims to help the sick and disabled with music therapy.

Speaking about his accolade, Tony said: "It's fantastic to be awarded the Sony Ericsson Lifetime Achievement Award following in the footsteps of so many great artists. I am a great believer that music can be a powerful healing force and I applaud all the fantastic work that Nordoff Robbins has implemented over the past 50 years. I feel I've joined a very special club. It is with great joy that I look forward to being back in the UK for the Silver Clef Awards and for my concert tour in what is my 60th Anniversary year as a recording artist."

This event is being held at London's Hilton on Park Lane hotel on 2 July 2010 and will be hosted by 'America's Got Talent' judge Sharon Osbourne.
