(Radio.com) Sting won the Polar Music Prize in Sweden, in recognition of "the power and importance of music." In addition to 1 million Swedish crowns, Sting won a gala celebration where artists covered his solo material and hits with the Police.

The Tallest Man on Earth performed a pared-down version of "Roxanne" but the night's most moving tribute was still to come. Annie Lennox surprised Sting at the ceremony with a performance of "Fragile." She described it as the "only" song she could perform--a clear personal favorite among his deep catalog.

"It's a such a pleasure to be here tonight. I could not feel more privileged and more honored to perform for you. You know, I've been a really sincere fan of your music for decades. You've inspired me along with millions of people around the world, and this is such a privilege." Watch performances from the evening here.
