BMI awards honouring Maroon 5's Levine
NEW YORK -- Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine for president? Sort of.
Broadcast Music Inc. announced Monday that Levine will receive the President's Award at the 61st annual BMI Pop Awards on May 14.
The event will be held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. It will also honour last year's top songwriters in pop.
BMI says the 34-year-old Levine was selected for his "outstanding achievements in songwriting and the global impact he has had on pop culture."
Maroon 5 has released four platinum-plus albums, including last year's Overexposed. The album features hits including Payphone, One More Night and Daylight.
Levine is also a coach on NBC's hit series The Voice.
BMI is a music rights management company that represents more than 500,000 songwriters, composers and music publishers.
