Lloyd Bishop/NBCLauryn Hill will be presented with the prestigious Golden Note Award at ASCAP’s 28th annual Rhythm & Soul Music Awards, taking place next month.
According to Billboard, the singer will also perform during the invitation-only event June 25 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Los Angeles. Jazmine Sullivan will also perform during the ceremony, which honors songwriters and publishers of the most-performed ASCAP songs from last year.
Lauryn is being recognized for her “ability to push boundaries and capture the humanity that surrounds us,” says ASCAP president Paul Williams, “Ms. Hill’s talent as a songwriter is undeniable and reflects her singular take on the world we live in.”
The singer joins previous Golden Note recipients, which include Pharrell Williams, Dr. Dre, Alicia Keys, and Stevie Wonder.
