With over 40 million records sold, multiple chart-topping hits, and a respect from fellow musicians that echoes across genres, singer/songwriter Brandy had made an indelible mark on the music industry.
As such, it’s only fitting the R&B diva be the recipient of the BMI President’s Award at its 2019 R&B/Hip-Hop Award ceremony.
“As a singer/songwriter, actress and humanitarian, Brandy is a triple threat in every sense of the word,” said Catherine Brewton, BMI Vice President Creative (Atlanta). “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. We are so excited to honor Brandy with the BMI President’s Award and look forward to celebrating a night of great music.”
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. Past honorees include Curtis Mayfield, Toni Braxton and and more.
Brandy – who already has over 100 industry awards to her credit – will be on hand on August 29th to add this latest accolade to her collection.
Here’s hoping the event is just one of many appearances we can expect from the 40-year-old as she reportedly readies the rollout of new music from her forthcoming album, due later this year.
