BMI To Honour Jamiroquai's Jay Kay With BMI President's Award

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI), announced today that legendary songwriter and lead singer of Jamiroquai, Jay Kay, will receive the BMI President's Award at this year's BMI London Awards in recognition of his profound influence on songwriting within the music industry. The event will be returning to London's Dorchester Hotel on October 9th, 2017, and will be hosted by BMI President & CEO Mike O'Neill and Brandon Bakshi, BMI's Executive Director, Creative for Europe & Asia.

Jay Kay joins an elite group of past honourees who have received the BMI President's award for their exemplary contributions to the art of music and have profoundly influenced the entertainment industry. Previous honourees include Kenny Chesney, P!nk, Willie Nelson, Adam Levine, Gloria & Emilio Estefan, and Toni Braxton.

Bakshi added "Jay Kay's extraordinary creativity has carved a prolific career spanning not only three decades, but also multiple genres. As a dynamic and mesmerising performer he has entertained millions across the globe whilst continuing to add to his exceptionally diverse catalogue. We are extremely proud to award Jay Kay the BMI President's Award for his originality which has inspired generations of musicians and fans alike."

The annual gala will also pay tribute to the U.K. and European songwriters and publishers of the past year's most-performed songs on U.S. radio and television from BMI's repertoire of nearly 12 million musical works. The Million-Air Awards, Song of the Year, and awards for Pop, Dance, Film, Television and Cable Television Music will also be presented throughout the evening. Last year's recipients include Ed Sheeran, Snow Patrol, Rudimental, Hozier, Disciples, and highly successful songwriters Wayne Hector and Ed Drewett.

Jay Kay has had global success, enjoying over two decades of music industry triumphs with his band Jamiroquai. Together they have accumulated an impressive list of accolades including GRAMMY's, Ivor Novellos, MTV Awards, and 13 BRIT Award nominations. Throughout 25 years of existence, they have sold out numerous tours across the world and their greatest hits album 'High Times: Singles 1992-2006' went double platinum in the UK alone.
