Non-profit org pays tribute to duo

Herb Alpert and Lani Hall will receive the 18th Ella Award from the Society of Singers, a non-profit organization that benefits the health and welfare of professional singers.

The honor will be presented to Alpert and Hall, who are married, at a ceremony at the Beverly Hilton on May 18. The Ella Award is given to individuals whose musical accomplishments are matched by their dedication to charitable and humanitarian causes.

For the past two decades, the Herb Alpert Foundation has underwritten funding in the areas of the arts and education. This year, the foundation celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Alpert Award in the Arts, granted to emerging artists in five disciplines annually.
