Kidderminster Male Choir is highly delighted
to welcome our new Honorary President
Author, DJ, Pop Idol judge and television presenter, Pete is perhaps best known as one third of the hugely successful music production and song-writing partnership, Stock Aitken Waterman and for his world-famous PWL label. In addition to this, Pete has the unique distinction of being the most successful producer-songwriter in British history. His many awards and recognitions include 13 Ivor Novellos as well as being named the Music Industry’s ‘Man of the Year’ in 1990.
Responsible for over 500 million record sales around the world, Pete has worked with a who’s who of artists including Kylie Minogue, Donna Summer, Rick Astley, John Travolta and Steps. Today, Pete is as passionate about music as he was when, as an enterprising young boy, he cycled between local churches earning a few shillings singing in their choirs.
More recently he has added radio presenter to his many talents with a weekly syndicated show on Radio WM.
In 2001 Pete received an Honorary Doctorate from Coventry University (2001) followed by the University of Liverpool in 2004.
In 2005 Pete was honoured with an OBE in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List for services to the music industry.
