Lauryn Hill to Receive ASCAP Golden Note Award
Lauryn Hill just can't stop winning. The "Doo-Wop" singer will be given the Golden Note Award at ASCAP's 28th annual Rhythm & Soul Music Awards this year.
According to Billboard, the event will take place June 25 in Los Angeles at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. Hill's prodigious career will be glorified that night as she will join past recipients Dr. Dre, Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys and Pharrell in receiving the award.
In addition to receiving the award, Hill will also touch the stage and perform a slew of classics. ASCAP President, Paul Williams, gushed about her innumerable accomplishments in a statement. He touched on her “ability to push boundaries and capture the humanity that surrounds us." He continued paying homage by saying, “Ms. Hill’s talent as a songwriter is undeniable and reflects her singular take on the world we live in.”
Aside from the eight-time Grammy Award winner performing, Jasmine Sullivan will also be in attendance and hitting the stage.
Her debut solo album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, propelled her into notoriety as a solo artist after showing signs of promise with the Fugees. Her debut opus wowed critics and earned her five Grammys, while selling over close to 20 million albums worldwide. Earlier this year, the album was added to the Library of Congress. Congrats to Lauryn Hill for her newest accolade.
