US distributor Alfred Haber Television has been appointed exclusive distributor with worldwide rights for the recently taped ITV special BRITs Icon: Elton John.

This 90-minute gala concert celebrates the life and career of Elton John as he is awarded the first ever BRITs Icon Award for the most influential figures in music, who have had a "lasting impact" on UK culture.
Created by BPI, the body that represents the UK recorded music industry, the honour was designed as an extension of the annual BRIT Awards ceremony, UK's largest music award show.
Taped live at the London Palladium and hosted by Dermot O'Leary, the musical show includes Elton's performances of some of his greatest hits performed with his close friend Rod Stewart.
The special also features video tributes by Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, Annie Lennox, Mumford & Sons, Bernie Taupin, Bono, Charlie Watts, Ed Sheeran, Billie Jean King and former President Bill Clinton.
