LONDON, Sept. 12 (UPI) -- Led Zeppelin, Rod Stewart, Brian Wilson and the late Dusty Springfield were announced Tuesday as inductees to the U.K. Music Hall of Fame.

Beatles' producer George Martin will receive special recognition for "his exceptional contribution to British music" during the Nov. 14 ceremony at Alexandria Palace in London, the BBC reported Tuesday.

The U.K. Music Hall of Fame was established in 2004 to honor musicians from all nations who have had an impact on the British music scene.

California's Wilson, who has released seven solo albums and is best known for his work with the Beach Boys, is scheduled to perform during the ceremony. Wolfmother will also play a tribute to Led Zeppelin while Joss Stone and Patti LaBelle will sing two hits of Springfield's, who died at age 59 in 1999.

Highlights of the ceremony will be aired on Britain's Channel 4 Nov. 16 and for U.S. music fans Nov. 25 on cable's VH1.
