SONGS OF HOPE ADDS HONOR FOR SZA

SZA will receive the first-ever She Is The Music award at Songs of Hope XIV, the event benefitting the independent cancer research and treatment center City of Hope. UMPG Global Chairman and CEO Jody Gerson will present the award.

SZA will be recognized for her creative excellence in songwriting, influence on women in music and impact on culture. The female-focused distinction is named for the “She Is The Music” industry initiative, an inclusive call-to-action to increase opportunities and equality for women in music. The organization was created in response to an industry report from the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative revealing staggering gender disparities for female creators working in music. 

A songwriter signed to UMPG, SZA wrote all of the songs on her TDE/RCA debut Ctrl and has also co-written “What Lovers Do” with Maroon 5, "All the Stars" with Kendrick Lamar, and "I Do" with Cardi B. She has also written for Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna.

Songs of Hope XIV presented by Spotify will be held 9/13 at Alex da Kid’s KIDinaKORNER Kampus, in Sherman Oaks. City of Hope previously announced award presenters and recipients.
