The Women Songwriters Hall of Fame’s mission is to honor women whose work represents the heritage and legacy of the world's music songbook. It not only celebrates established women songwriters, but also serves as a resource for developing new songwriting talent through workshops, showcases, discovery, and scholarship
"Not only was I being celebrated at this auspicious event in Washington, D.C., I was among other accomplished songwriters.. a good time was had by all.”
"It was a honor to be the first host and celebrate women songwriters often overlooked by the industry as well as the Songwriters Hall of Fame in it’s 20 years. Congratulations to the first group of honorees."
"The Women Songwriter's Hall of Fame is Janice McLean Deloatch's Groundbreaking Idea. What a pleasure to perform magic at this inaugural event. And the real magic is this will get even bigger and bolder every year."
Includes women as composers, songwriters, instrumental performers, singers, conductors, music scholars, music educators, music critics/music journalists and in other musical professions.
A songwriter is an individual who writes the lyrics, melodies and chord progressions for songs, typically for a popular music genre such as pop, rock country music, etc.
Numerous women stand out as pioneers of their chosen genre, but this does not go without saying there is so much more work to be done.
