Event to take place May 19

Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, architects of the Philadelphia soul dynasty of the 1960s and ’70s, will be honored as BMI Icons at its 57th annual Pop Awards on May 19 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.

Evening will culminate with an all-star musical tribute to the pair. BMI Icons are selected because of their indelible influence on generations of music makers.

Gamble and Huff composed and produced landmark work by their Philly Intl. Records artists such as the O’Jays, Lou Rawls, Jerry Butler, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, the Three Degrees and Billy Paul.

They have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame, and have received the Recording Academy’s Trustees Award.

The invitation-only event also will honor the songwriters and publishers of the past year’s most-performed pop songs in the U.S.
