2017 SESAC 21st Annual Pop Awards in New York


2017 SESAC Pop Award

On April 13th, 2017 SESAC hosted its 21st annual Pop Awards at the historic Cipriani 42nd Street in New York tonight. The event was attended by the music industry’s top leaders, artists, songwriters and publishers. SESAC’s Charli XCX (PRS) was named Songwriter of the Year and earned the Song of the Year award for penning the chart-topping “Same Old Love,” recorded by Selena Gomez. Sony ATV Sounds was named Publisher of the Year.

In addition to this year, Charli XCX was honored in 2014 with SESAC Songwriter of the Year and Song of the Year for the hit “I Love It,” recorded by Icona Pop feat. Charli XCX.  Most recently, Charli XCX released the ten-song mixtape “Angel” to rave reviews, with one critic saying the artist continues to be “the one to watch.”

Pop culture aficionado and Sirius XM radio host Bevy Smith, author and Rolling Stone contributing editor Joe Levy, and veteran entertainment journalist John Norris served as presenters during the awards show, which featured an exciting performance by Jaheim of “Struggle Love,” written by SESAC honoree Bale’Wa Muhammad. Headlining the evening with a lively and unforgettable performance was SESAC Legacy Award recipient George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic. The founder of iconic rap group Public Enemy, Mr. Chuck D, presented George Clinton with the SESAC Legacy Award.
