As Billboard has reported, Mr. Worldwide will be receiving the first-ever Global Ambassador Award at the 48th annual Songwriters Hall of Fame induction and awards ceremony on June 15.
The special honor, which will not be given annually but only when merited, celebrates artists and songwriters whose music has “true worldwide appeal, crossing genre, cultural and national boundaries”.
“Pitbull’s success, creativity, tireless musical collaboration and his wide-ranging social activism make him the ideal songwriter-performer to initiate the SHOF Global Ambassador Award,” SHOF co-chairs Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff and President/CEO Linda Moran, said via statement.
The Songwriters Hall of Fame ceremony will take place at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City on Thursday, June 15th! Tickets for the event begin at $1,250 each, and are available through Buckley Hall Events, 914-579-1000. Net proceeds from the event will go toward the Songwriters Hall of Fame programs.
Huge congratulations to Pitbull and the team!
