Stings have also appeared on a seemingly endless amount of albums by, for example, Les Paul, Melody Gardot, Shaggy, Ricky Martin, All Saints, Sheryl Crow, James Taylor, Tony Bennet, Sam Moore, Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis, Black Eyed Peas, Craig David, Tina Turner, Phil Collins and perhaps most famously Dire Straits where he contributed with backing vocals on their smash hit Money For Nothing.

Including his sales with The Police, Sting has sold over 100 million records.

His awards include seventeen Grammies, three Brits, one Golden Globe, and an Emmy as well as four Oscar nominations.

As we reached a new millennium, recognition started to come in.

Starting with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame (2000), included in the Songwriters Hall Of Fame (2002), Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame (2003), a CBE from Queen Elisabeth II (2004), Kennedy Center Honoree (2014) and a Polar Prize (2017).
