Major! Mariah Carey, The Neptunes, & More To Be Inducted Into Songwriters Hall Of Fame 2020

Published: Thursday 16th Jan 2020 by Sam

The Songwriters Hall Of Fame has announced its Class of 2020 and it’s led by one of the most prolific writers of all-time – Mariah Carey!

Full story below…

Moments ago it was revealed that Mimi made the cut – a year after her initial consideration.

She notably scored her 19th #1 with ‘All I Want For Christmas For You’ recently during the window of its 25th anniversary. A feat which means she’s penned 18 of her 19 US chart-toppers.

Carey is joined by production supernovas The Neptunes (Pharrell Williams & Chad Hugo), Eurythmics, The Isley Brothers, Steve Miller, Rick Nowels, and William “Mickey” Stevenson. 

Speaking on the Class of 2020, SHOF Chairman Nile Rodgers said:

“The first thing you need to know is it’s about the song, the second thing you need to know is it’s about the song, the third thing you need to know is it’s about the song. I am very proud that we are recognizing some of the culturally most important songwriters of all time and that the 2020 slate of inductees represents diversity and unity across genres, ethnicity and gender, writers who have enriched our lives and in their time literally transformed music and helped make it what it is today.”

The Hall’s 51st annual Induction & Awards Gala takes place on June 11th at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York.
