July 30, 2014 at 9:29 AM (PT)
THE LIVING LEGENDS FOUNDATION will hold its 18th Annual Awards event on FRIDAY OCTOBER 3rd in LOS ANGELES at the TAGLYAN CULTURAL COMPLEX, 1201 N. Vine Street. It will be the first time in its 23 year history that the event will be held in L.A.
Chairman of the FOUNDATION DAVID LINTON told ALL ACCESS, "This years event is going to be special in many ways. First of all we are honored to have President of NORTH AMERICA WARNER CHAPPELL MUSIC PUBLISHING JON PLATT as our Event Chairman. JON's ascension to this position is historic in nature. We will also be presenting new awards in honor of two people we lost, but left large handprints on our history and American culture. I am referring to one of the Founders of our organization, the late JERRY BOULDING (former ALL ACCESS Urban/UAC Editor), and SOUL TRAIN Founder DON CORNELIUS. We will also be awarding our first ICON LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD to Ms. CATHY HUGHES, who continues to break ground as Chairperson/Founder of RADIO ONE & TV ONE. This looks to be one of the best class of inductees into what we call THE LIVING LEGENDS HALL OF FAME."
