(SANDY SPRINGS, ATLANTA (CelebrityAccess) — Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter and actress Brandy will be presented with the BMI President’s Award at the performance rights organization’s annual R&B/Hip-Hop Awards on Thursday, August 29th.
The BMI President’s Award is presented to an individual songwriter, composer or producer who has made significant contributions to the art of music and songwriting and who has influenced the entertainment industry.
“As a singer/songwriter, actress and humanitarian, Brandy is a triple threat in every sense of the word,” said BMI Vice President Creative (Atlanta), Catherine Brewton. “Her timeless hits about love and heartbreak were anthems to many coming of age during the 90s and secured her place in R&B history.” Brewton added, “We are so excited to honor Brandy with the BMI President’s Award and look forward to celebrating a night of great music.”
As the 2019 honoree, Brandy joins previous recipients Curtis Mayfield, Ludacris, Toni Braxton and Will.i.am who have been presented with the award.
The private event, held at the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center in Atlanta, will be hosted by BMI President & CEO Mike O’Neill and Catherine Brewton.
