Songwriters Hall of Fame: Songwriters-in-the-Round
Featuring Claudia Brant, Deana Carter, Christina Perri, Lauren Christy and Makeba Riddick
In conjunction with the Songwriters Hall of Fame, join us as we present the latest installment in a continuing series of Songwriters-in-the-Round events in the Museum’s Clive Davis Theater. The event will feature a stellar gathering of some of today’s top songwriter/producers speaking about their craft and the stories behind their hit songs, with special performances by women currently at the top of their game: Claudia Brant (Luis Fonsi, Josh Groban, Ricky Martin), Deana Carter (Deana Carter, Kenny Chesney), Lauren Christy (Avril Lavigne, Jason Mraz, Enrique Iglesias), Christina Perri (Jar of Hearts, A Thousand Years, Arms) and Makeba Riddick (Rihanna, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez). The event will be moderated by Melinda Newman, freelance entertainment journalist and former West Coast Bureau Chief/Deputy Editor for Billboard Magazine. The Songwriters Hall of Fame, together with the GRAMMY Museum, has been producing this annual premier Songwriting Legends-in-the-Round event since 2010. The Songwriters Hall of Fame Gallery, located on the museum’s fourth floor, features video highlights from annual SHOF Awards & Induction Dinners, as well as information on all SHOF inductees and honorees.
