SONGWRITERS HALL SELECTS SEVEN

Mariah Carey, the Isley Brothers, the members of Eurythmics and The Neptunes, Steve Miller, Rick Nowels and William “Mickey” Stevenson are heading into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

The inductees will be honored 6/11 at the 51st annual Induction and Awards Dinner at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. Additional special award honorees will be announced soon.

“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,” SHOF Chairman Nile Rodgers said.

The Isleys are Ernie, Marvin, O’Kelly, Ronald and Rudolph Isley plus Chris Jasper; Chad Hugo and Pharrell Williams make up The Neptunes; and Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart are Eurhythmics.

Stevenson, Motown’s first Head of A&R, co-wrote “Dancing in the Street,” “It Takes Two,” “Beechwood 4-5789,” “Stubborn Kind of Fellow” and  “Devil With the Blue Dress On.”

Nowels has co-written more than 60 Top 20 singles including Belinda Carlilse’s “Heaven is a Place on Earth,” “You Get What You Give” for the New Radicals and Madonna’s “The Power of Goodbye.”

A songwriter with a notable catalog of songs qualifies for induction 20 years after the first commercial release of a song.
