Ne-Yo wins young songwriter award

US R&B singer-songwriter Ne-Yo has won a top award at the 43rd Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony in New York.

Ne-Yo was honoured with the Hal David Starlight Award given to young artists who are making a significant impact with their original music.

"To have a person who has written a song that I look up to or that I grew up listening to tell me that I am good at it too. That means the world to me," Ne-Yo said of Hal David, a frequent songwriting partner to Burt Bacharach.

Then he explained to the audience of music legends how writing songs saved him.

"I was a pretty riled up little kid, and if not for my mom giving me the pad and the pen and telling me to take my emotions and put them there, then there was no telling then I might I have been sticking you up or something," Ne-Yo joked.

After being inducted by Swizz Beatz, Ne-Yo told the crowd of nearly 900 that he did not prepare a speech because he still didn't believe he was standing there.

Rocker Bob Seger, Canadian folk rocker Gordon Lightfoot, Don Schlitz who wrote the song Gamber and Jim Steinman of Bat Out of Hell fame became the latest members of the songwriting hall of fame during the ceremony.
