Songwriters Hall of Fame Reveals Its Inductees Nominees



38 years of running, the Songwriters Hall of Fame is back with a new batch of names to be inducted later this year.

Not only Rock and Roll stars get the chance to be inductees this year, the people behind popular hits will also be the inductees of Songwriters Hall of Fame (SHOF). Among the names mentioned as the nominees are Jackson Browne, Ray Davies, Merle Haggard and Lou Reed.

Conducted in respect for the works of composers and lyricists, this event will be held on June 7 at Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York. Performers and non-performers are two large categories in the nomination. The names above are those included as the performers. Meanwhile in the non-performer category, there are Don Black who has penned Michael Jackson's "Ben", Michael Masser who wrote "Touch Me in the Morning" for Diana Ross and also Albert Hammond who has co-written the hit "To All the Girls I've Loved Before".

The Chairman of SHOF Hal David said, "From soaring film scores to seminal rock 'n' roll, from calypso classics to pop anthems, this year's inductees truly have contributed to the soundtrack of our lives."

SHOF was founded in 1969 by songwriter Johnny Mercer and publishers Abe Olman and Howie Richmond. Not only celebrating songwriters by alerting the public for their achievements, but SHOF also provide scholarship, workshops and development of songwriting talent.
