LADY GAGA will receive the first-ever CONTEMPORARY ICON AWARD from the SONGWRITERS HALL OF FAME at the 46th Annual Induction and Awards Dinner slated for THURSDAY, JUNE 18th at the MARRIOTT MARQUIS HOTEL in NEW YORK CITY.
The SONGWRITERS HALL OF FAME CONTEMPORARY ICON AWARD has been initiated in order to celebrate a songwriter-artist who has attained an iconic status in pop culture.
Commenting on the selection, SHOF Pres./CEO LINDA MORAN suggested the honor could well have been created with LADY GAGA in mind. "She has enjoyed monumental popularity on the charts, on radio, TV and the Internet, not to mention the continuous press coverage she has generated. She is a consistent hit-maker who has surprised everyone by proving to be as adept with the great standards as she is with her own songs. We at SHOF are particularly proud that LADY GAGA performed at one of our songwriter showcases when she was still known as STEFANI GERMANOTTA.”
