CONGRATS to Motown legend Stevie Wonder!
The 25-time Grammy winning singer-songwriter will be accepting ASCAP’s inaugural “Key of Life” Award in L.A. next week during the “I Create Music” Expo. The event is taking place April 13-15 and Wonder is slated to appear as part of the keynote session.
According to the press release, The “Key of Life” Award celebrates Wonder’s incomparable, peerless contributions to the world through his music. In the future, the honor will be presented to songwriters and composers who best exemplify his legacy through their commitment to the art form he elevated through his talent, dedication and unparalleled heart.
“Stevie has deservedly been given every award imaginable,” said ASCAP President Paul Williams. “Yet he continues to innovate and elevate the art of songwriting to the point where no honor can truly capture what he means to his creative kin at ASCAP, and to songwriters and music lovers worldwide. This award has been created as a way to honor his singularly inspirational songwriting career and to recognize his spirit in generations to come.”
Other musicians and songwriters scheduled to appear include Aloe Blacc, Desmond Child, Darrell Brown, Brian Kennedy, Malik Yusef and more.
