Last night (Monday) the Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) awards were held honoring Sir Tim Rice–an internationally renowned lyricist that helped with amazing creations such as Lion King and Jesus Christ Superstar. Sir Tim Rice was given the BMI Icon award because of his “unique and indelible influence on generations of music makers.”
Nile Rodgers received the Song of the Year Award for “Get Lucky” co-writen with Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams. This award is presented to the most-performed song created by a UK or European writer on the U.S. radio and television in the past year.
