Prince to be honoured at BET Awards
Prince is to be presented with a lifetime achievement gong at the BET Awards.
The 51-year-old pop star will join the likes of James Brown, Whitney Houston, Diana Ross and Al Green in being honoured by the BET Awards, which will celebrate its 10th year in Los Angeles on June 27.
Stephen G Hill, president of programming, music and specials for the network, said BET will celebrate the Rock And Roll Hall Of Famer's "unique style".
"Prince is dynamic. Prince is genius. Prince is music," Hill said of the US performer, who has 10 platinum albums and 30 Top 40 singles to his name.
The show will be hosted by Queen Latifah and will include a performance by Kanye West.
