Brandy will be honored with the BMI President’s Award at the 2019 R&B/Hip-Hop Awards. Located in Atlanta, Georgia, the ceremony will be held at the Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center on August 29th.
The BMI Vice President Creative, Catherine Brewton praised Brandy in a press statement. “As a singer/songwriter, actress and humanitarian, Brandy is a triple threat in every sense of the word,” said 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.”
The BMI President’s Award is presented to an individual songwriter, composer or producer who has made exemplary contributions to the art of music and songwriting and profoundly influenced the entertainment industry. Previous recipients of the prestigious honor include Curtis Mayfield, Toni Braxton, Ludacris and Will.i.am.
