Folk legend DONOVAN has been honoured for his songwriting skills at London's BMI Awards.
The Scottish-born singer was named a BMI Icon at Tuesday's (06Oct09) ceremony, which celebrates the most played songs on U.S. radio and television.
Donovan joins previous winners such as Bryan Ferry, Peter Gabriel, Van Morrison and Ray Davies.
He says, "It's a wonderful honour to be recognised for one's songs, for a body of work, and when I looked at that list I was very, very pleased."
Natasha Bedingfield was handed the prestigious Robert S. Musel Award for her track Pocketful Of Sunshine, while Estelle's American Boy, Adele's Chasing Pavements and Ne-Yo's Closer also triumphed at the ceremony.
