The UK Music Industry is proud to announce that Dame Vera Lynn will be the recipient of this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award at the Classic BRIT Awards. 

National treasure and original “Forces' Sweetheart”, Dame Vera, who recently celebrated her 101st birthday, was one of the biggest-selling female artists of last year after releasing her latest album ‘Vera 100’ which charted at No.3. Dame Vera continues to make music history by being the only recording artist in the world to span the charts since they began to the present day! The singer famously boosted the nation’s morale during the darkest days of World War II, and has been honoured countless times for her services to entertainment and charity. Her latest accolade came in the Queen’s 2016 birthday honours list when she was made a Member of the Order of the Companions of Honour – the first person from the field of popular entertainment to do so. Over the decades, Vera Lynn’s popularity has never waned and she remains perhaps the most beloved of all British female vocalists.

You can book tickets the Classic BRITs on June 13th here.
