Young Honored Founders Award by ASCAP



Young, 59, was honored with the Founders Award by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP)

Considering his music contribution, which is claimed by many "will continue to rock the free world and enrich generations to come," Neil Young was honored with the Founders Award by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP). The Monday tribute took place during the performing rights group's 22nd annual pop music awards, which honored the writers and copyright owners of the most performed songs of 2004.

Mentioned to bring home the awards were songwriter/producer Jermaine Dupri, who received the Golden Note Award, in part for "impacting the heart, soul and sound of pop music worldwide" and Scott Storch to be named songwriter of the year, mainly for his work on the Beyonce Knowles hits "Baby Boy," "Me, Myself & I" and "Naughty Girl." Performed on the event were Mariah Carey and R&B star Usher, both to sing Dupri's praises, while Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson turned up singing their tune "Ain't No Mountain High Enough."
