JAM & LEWIS RECEIVE D.C. HONORS

Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis will be honored at the Recording Academy’s Grammys on the Hill Awards. The 20th anniversary ceremony takes place on 9/22.

Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) and Rep. Michael McCaul (R-Texas) will be honored for their contributions to legislation that protects and ensures fair treatment of music creators. Deutch is lead Democratic sponsor for the American Music Fairness Act; McCaul co-sponsored the Help Independent Tracks Succeed Act (the unfortunately named HITS Act).

"The pandemic has shown us just how crucial it is for the Academy and Congress to work together to find equitable solutions that protect the music community," said Harvey Mason Jr., CEO of the Academy. "We're thrilled to celebrate the legislators and artists who've improved the environment for creators with the return of GRAMMYs on the Hill—a celebration of the music community and Congress' coming together to achieve policy advancements in the name of music. To have Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and Representatives Deutch and McCaul join us at the 20th anniversary of the event is truly an honor, and we're looking forward to recognizing their invaluable contributions made toward the fight for creators' rights."

The awards dinner and presentation will transpire at The Hamilton Live in Washington, D.C., with performances by the musical honorees and additional special guests.
