''Proud to have you and Black Fox Management in our Rocket family,'' it says.
The 33-year-old got the award for British Single of the Year.
Elton also acknowleged Ed Sheeran's honour. He appeared via via to note that his friend had received the Global Success Award at Wednesday night’s ceremony. 
 Speaking from Los Angeles, Elton remarked: “I'm so sorry I couldn't be there in person but I wouldn't miss the opportunity to talk about one of my dear friends.

“For the very first time I heard Ed Sheeran I knew he would be a huge star across the world.”

Elton also said, “I was really touched to hear Ed reference ‘Tiny Dancer’ in ‘Castle on the Hill,’ – it sent my streaming numbers through the roof. Thank you, Ed. He’s an outstanding songwriter and not just for himself. I’ve loved working with him and what he’s done throughout his career, especially over the last 12 months is incredible …”

Ron Wood was there in person to hand Sheeran his trophy and praised the singer saying, “He is really one of the top talents we have. I tell you what’s made him so famous and so lovable is that he keeps his feet on the ground and just by being himself, he has won our hearts and sold millions of records.”
