The awards committee called Minogue, a breast cancer survivor whose career in music has spanned 20 years, "one of the great entertainers of all time" and "an icon of pop and style," the BBC reported Monday.
Minogue, 38, said she was "truly thrilled" about receiving the annual award, which is in 16th year and recognizes a wide range of figures connected to the music industry, including retailers and company executives.
"As well as being a fantastic evening, this award ceremony also raises much needed funds for The Brit Trust and Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy, and it is a pleasure for me to be involved," said Minogue.
