Ed Sheeran Wins Song Of The Year At The BMI London Awards

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Ed Sheeran won the Song Of The Year prize at the BMI London Awards last on October 9, which took place at the Dorchester Hotel in Mayfair.
It's the second time that the 26-year-old UK singer-songwriter has won the award. He first received it in 2016 for his hit, "Thinking Out Loud," but this year it was for writing Justin Bieber's hit, "Love Yourself".
Sheeran beat off stiff competition from both Zayn Malik for his single, "Pillowtalk," and James Bay for his single, "Let It Go".

Sheeran was also awarded the Dance Song Of The Year gong for co-writing "Cold Water" with Jamie Scott and MØ.

Elsewhere at the awards, Jamiroquai frontman Jay Kay received the BMI President's Award because of his "originality, which has inspired generations of musicians and fans alike".

Past winners of the award have included: P!nk, Kenny Chesney, Willie Nelson, Toni Braxton and Adam Levine.

Upon collecting the award, Jay Kay said: "I'm very happy to receive this award tonight, it's been 30 years since I began a career in music, and I'm lucky to still be able to do my thing and express it through songs.
"There's still no better buzz really, than starting off with that 'thing' in your head and letting it get to the stage where you hear it on the radio, in front of loads of people, all over the world, it's a real privilege."
