ATLANTA, Feb. 19 (UPI) -- Soccer star David Beckham took home top honors at Cartoon Network's second annual Hall of Game Awards in Atlanta.

The Los Angeles Galaxy star was given the Icon Award, one of several awards handed out by Cartoon Network Saturday and voted on by more than 100 million fans, the network said in a news release Sunday.

Other award winners included NBA stars LeBron James and Kobe Bryan for Best Foes Forever, Vancouver Canucks forwards Daniel and Henrik Sedin for Super Siblings and U.S. soccer player Hope Solo for She's Got Game.

Shaquille O'Neal hosted the event, which is set to air 7 p.m. Monday on Cartoon Network. The award show included appearances by First Lady Michelle Obama, Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, the release said.

Musical performances by Hot Chelle Rae and Flo Rida -- whose "Good Feeling" won for Amped Up Anthem -- provided entertainment for the evening.
