Russell Simmons earns PGA honor

Russell SimmonsRussell Simmons will receive the Producers Guild of America Visionary Award at the PGA kudos Jan. 26.

 “Throughout his career, Russell has accomplished the
kinds of things that only a true visionary can,” said 2013 PGA Awards Chair
Michael DeLuca. “He has seamlessly bridged the worlds of hip-hop music and
filmed entertainment through poetry, comedy and music, offering viewers and
music fans alike not just a reflection of themselves, but a hopeful glimpse of
a world filled with art, joy and compassion.

“Whether he’s championing new
voices behind the mic, onstage, onscreen or in the classroom, or he is working
to raise awareness about the victims of the global slave trade, Russell
envisions a world populated by our ‘better angels,’ and for that, I’m very
proud to call him my friend and we are so pleased to honor him with the 2013
Producers Guild of America Visionary Award.”
