ASCAP To Host Virtual Celebrations For Pop, Screen, Latin, Rhythm & Soul Honors

ASCAP will hold four virtual celebrations to honor the songwriters and publishers of its most-performed songs over the past year for Pop, Screen, Latin, and Rhythm & Soul music.

The series of celebrations will launch June 17-19 with the ASCAP Pop Music Awards, followed by the Screen Music Awards (June 23-25), Latin Music Awards (July 7-9) and Rhythm & Soul Music Awards (July 15-17).

Each event will include three days of content focused on each genre, hosted on ASCAP’s social media channels. The events will include livestreamed performances, winner spotlights and interviews with top songwriters.

“Our members are the heart and soul of ASCAP and every year we look forward to the chance to reunite in person and celebrate their outstanding contributions to music,” said ASCAP Chairman of the Board and President Paul Williams. “Even though we can’t be together ‘in real life’ this time, we are so excited to honor them virtually so that we can all connect and share our collective love of music. We invite music fans everywhere to join us in toasting their music and what their creative work adds to our lives.”

Spotlight award show moments including Songwriter of the Year, Songwriter-Artist of the Year, Publisher of the Year, Independent Publisher of the Year and Song of the Year will remain major highlights during the online festivities. ASCAP will also unveil the winners of its annual Composers’ Choice Awards, which allow ASCAP composer members to vote for their top Film Score of the Year, TV Composer of the Year and Video Game Score of the Year.
