Peter Gabriel Receives Top Honor at BMI London Awards

BMI saluted Europe’s premier songwriters, composers and music publishers at its 2007 London Awards, held May 16 in the Grand Ballroom of London’s Dorchester Hotel. Hosted by BMI President & CEO Del Bryant, along with Executive Director, Writer/Publisher Relations Europe & Asia, Brandon Bakshi, the awards honored the past year’s most-played songs on U.S. radio and television and also recognized Peter Gabriel (PRS) as a BMI Icon for his “influence on generations of music makers.”

Gabriel’s achievements, whether musical, visual or humanitarian, are the work of a true visionary. The co-founder of rock band Genesis, Gabriel left the group in 1975 to begin a critically acclaimed, Grammy Award-winning solo career. Thus far, he has released 11 albums featuring self-penned gems and BMI million-performance songs, including “Big Time,” “Solsbury Hill,” “Sledgehammer” and “In Your Eyes,” and composed soundtracks for numerous films, including Martin Scorsese’s The Last Temptation of Christ. Amongst other bold endeavors, Gabriel founded Real World companies in 1987, housing his recording, publishing, film and multi-media ventures under one progressive roof. An early participant in Human Rights Now! and recipient of the Nobel Peace Laureates’ “Man of Peace” Award, Peter Gabriel founded world human rights advocacy supergroup in July 2007, with Richard Branson and Nelson Mandela.
