Elton John won the first Brits Icon in 2013 for his “lasting impact on British culture”. Indeed, his unique and quirky style and albums upon albums of popular, catchy songs have influenced countless musicians that followed him.
He's snagged six Grammy Awards, five Brit Awards, an Academy Award (for Can You Feel The Love Tonight in The Lion King), a Golden Globe Award, a Tony Award, a Disney Legend Award and the Kennedy Centre Honors.

Away from music, Elton is involved in the fight against AIDS, championing LGBT rights and speaking out for same-sex marriage.
