Natalie Cole, Aloe Blacc to Perform at Songs of Hope Fundraiser

The 11th Songs of Hope charity event, taking place Thursday night at the sprawling L.A. residence of music producer Ron Fair, has tapped recording artists Natalie Cole and Aloe Blacc for double duty: as performers and awards recipients.

The annual fundraiser — known for its A-list assembly of label execs, publishers and artists — celebrates musicians while raising money for City of Hope, an independent biomedical research institution and cancer treatment center.

Cole will be given the Songs of Hope Hitmaker Award, and will perform as part of the tribute to another honoree on Thursday night, Burt Bacharach, who is receiving the Clive Davis Legend in Songwriting Award, being presented by the mogul himself, Mr. Davis.

Blacc will be bestowed with the Songs of Hope Contemporary Songwriter Award at the nearly sold-out event.

Other honorees include Charli XCX (Martin Bandier Vanguard Award, named after the CEO of Sony/ATV) and “Frozen” film composer Christophe Beck (Electronic Arts Composer Award).

The event, for which 300 are currently scheduled to attend, is being co-chaired by David Renzer, chairman of Spirit Music Group; Doug Davis founder/principal of The Davis Firm; Evan Lamberg, president – North America, Universal Music Publishing Group; and Steve Schnur, president, Music of Electronic Arts.

Since its inception, the event has raised more than $3 million to support City of Hope. Last year’s fete generated $281,000 in donations.
