Mariah Carey continues to get her flowers.
The music icon will be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame this year. She will be joined by other legends including The Isley Brothers, The Neptunes (Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo), Eurythmics (Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart) and more.
“I can’t believe it…The SONGWRITERS HALL OF FAME!!!! This is truly one of the greatest honors of my career,” Carey tweeted. “I’m so proud and humbled to be in the company of such legendary songwriters – both previously inducted as well as the incredible class of 2020.”
Carey has written/co-written 18 of her 19 number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100, including “Vision of Love,” “Fantasy” and “We Belong Together.” Her most recent chart-topper was in 2019 with “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” which was originally released in 1994.
Chairman of the Songwriters Hall of Fame Nile Rogers added, “I am very proud that we are recognizing some of the culturally most important songwriters of all time and that the 2020 slate of inductees represents diversity and unity across genres, ethnicity and gender, writers who have enriched our lives and in their time literally transformed music and helped make it what it is today.”
The star-studded induction event takes place on Thursday, June 11 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. Additional special award honorees will be revealed at a later date.
