Drake will be honored for his songwriting skills. He will receive the Hal David Starlight Award at the 42nd Annual Songwriters Hall of Fame gala. He may have not gotten a Grammy, but this sounds just as prestigious.
And he’s in good company as Alicia Keys and John Legend have received the same award.
“Drake is one of music’s brightest new stars lauded for his songwriting prowess, melodious hooks, and emotionally transparent performances,” read the press release. “[His] skill of commanding a diverse audience through composition solidifies his position in the pantheon of great songwriters of this generation.”
Songwriters Hall of Fame Chairman and legendary songwriter Jimmy Webb added, “Drake shines as a talented songwriter with a unique vision and we are pleased to honor him with the prestigious Hal David Starlight Award.” SOURCE
