The pubco took 22 Most Performed Songs plaques, Songwriter of the Year for Steve Mac (who co-wrote Song of the Year "Shape of You" and Most Streamed Song for "Despacito," featuring Justin Bieber

In her remarks, Gerson hailed her global team and the writers in the room, and drew big cheers with her support for legislation. "Let's take an important moment," she said, "to thank everyone who has worked so tirelessly and come together in one unified voice on the Music Modernization Act—Beth, Paul [Williams] and the staff at ASCAP; the NMPA and David Israelite; the teams at the other PROs; the songwriter groups; the RIAA and label groups; and even our digital partners. We still have a ways to go, but this is what we are all fighting for everyday: making sure songwriters get paid fairly. This is a truly historic moment."
