Lady Gaga To Be Honored By Songwriters Hall Of Fame

(popmusiclife) Lady Gaga will be honored as the recipient of the first-ever Contemporary Icon Award by The Songwriters Hall Of Fame during their 46th Annual Induction and Awards Dinner on June 18 in New York.

The honor has been initiated in order to celebrate a songwriter-artist who has attained an iconic status in pop culture. Lady Gaga's resume includes three consecutive Number One albums on the Billboard 200, six Grammy Awards, 13 MTV Video Music Awards, named one of "The World's 100 Most Powerful Women" four years in a row by financial magazine Forbes - all on the way to selling 28 million albums and 140 million singles around the world.

"It could be said that this honor was created with Lady Gaga in mind," says SHOF President & CEO Linda Moran. "She has enjoyed monumental popularity on the charts, on radio, TV and the Internet, not to mention the continuous press coverage she has generated.

"She is a consistent hit maker who has surprised everyone by proving to be as adept with the great standards as she is with her own songs. We at SHOF are particularly proud that Lady Gaga performed at one of our songwriter showcases when she was still known as Stefani Germanotta." Read more here.
