New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The BRIT Awards 2019 with Mastercard today announces that multi-million selling global pop icon P!NK will be honoured with the prestigious Outstanding Contribution to Music Award at this year's ceremony, which takes place Wednesday 20th February. P!NK will be the first international artist to receive this award.

Seven studio albums and one greatest hits album on since her debut in 2000, totalling over 60 million global sales, over 8 million in the UK alone along with over 12 million UK single sales, P!NK is a musical force to be reckoned with. With seven Top Five albums - with two going No. 1 (Funhouse and the most recent platinum-certified Beautiful Trauma), three UK No. 1 singles ('Just Like A Pill', 'So What', 'Lady Marmalade') and 32 Top 40 singles, 19 of which going Top 10, including 'Try', 'Just Give Me A Reason' and 'What About Us', P!NK has become one of the UK's best-selling female artists and one of the world's greatest singers, with her inimitable powerhouse vocals and show-stopping stage performances.

Over 2 million tickets sold in the UK alone to date, nine BRIT nominations, and one win for International Female Solo Artist in 2003, and a string of other prestigious awards and accolades including three GRAMMY awards (20 nominations) and two Billboard Music Awards, P!NK's career sees no sign of letting up with her first UK stadium tour in five years booked for this summer, including two nights at London's Wembley Stadium.

P!NK said: "I am so honored to be recognized with the Outstanding Contribution To Music Award at the 2019 BRITs! Since the beginning of my career the British fans have been some of the most fierce and loyal in the world. I am humbled to receive this honor and be in the company of an illustrious group of British icons!"

BRITs Chairman and Chairman & CEO of Sony Music UK and Ireland Jason Iley said: "P!NK is a trailblazer, a phenomenally talented singer and songwriter, and truly one of the greatest artists of our time. It is a real pleasure to honour her at this year's BRIT Awards with the Outstanding Contribution To Music Award. With her remarkable career spanning nearly 20 years, P!NK is one of the most successful artists in the world, consistently releasing multi-million-selling albums and selling out tours all over the globe. I am really excited to welcome her back to The BRITs and to recognise her prodigious success."

P!NK joins an illustrious list of previous BRIT Awards Outstanding Contribution to Music recipients including Sir Elton John, David Bowie, Queen, Spice Girls, U2, Sir Paul McCartney, Oasis, Robbie Williams and Blur. The award was rested in 2013 to make way for a Special Recognition for War Child to mark the charity's 20th anniversary. P!NK will be the first international artist to receive the honour, a decision taken by the BRITs committee to open the award up to overseas acts who have achieved long term success in the UK, and P!NK will be awarded in recognition of her significant impact on British music and her incredible musical repertoire over the past two decades.

Like all winners on the night, P!NK will be presented with an exclusive trophy designed for this year only by Sir David Adjaye OBE, and she will close the show with an exclusive performance on the night, showcasing her extraordinary talent which continues to wow audiences all over the world.

P!nk brings her Beautiful Trauma World Tour to the UK this summer. Kicking off at Cardiff's Principality Stadium on the 20th June, she then plays two nights at Hampden Park in Glasgow, Anfield Stadium, Liverpool, before bringing the UK tour to a close with two epic nights at London's Wembley Stadium. Tickets on sale now.

The BRIT Awards 2019 with Mastercard take place Wednesday 20th February at The O2 Arena, London, broadcast exclusively on ITV and hosted by Jack Whitehall. Clara Amfo and Alice Levine will be back to host this year's Red Carpet show on ITV2 on the night of the awards for the third year running.
