Jess Glynne to get ASCAP Vanguard Award

Jess Glynne is to receive the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) Vanguard Award this week.

The 'Hold My Hand' hitmaker will pick up the prestigious gong at the organisation's annual event, held at One Embankment in London, on Thursday (10.11.16) alongside singer MNEK.

Jess - who is the biggest selling debut UK artist of 2015 having achieved a record-breaking five Number One singles and a Number One debut album - said: "The Vanguard award marks the end of a special couple of years for me. To be recognised not only by the public but by your peers, by other songwriters, for the music you are making is so heart-warming.

"When I look at the names that have won these awards on both sides of the Atlantic I can't even believe that I have been put in such a category. I just want to say thank you so much and I can't tell you how much I appreciate this."

The Vanguard Award, which has previously been won by the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Calvin Harris, Walk The Moon and Diplo - recognises the impact of outstanding ASCAP members on musical genres that will help shape the future of music.

ASCAP President Paul Williams said: "We are thrilled to honour both Jess Glynne and MNEK with the ASCAP Vanguard Award. Both artists are extremely unique British talents. Jess has reached a multigenerational demographic with her soulful pop music and inspired songwriting.

"MNEK's outstanding songs for superstars such as Beyoncé, Madonna and Kylie Minogue have made him an unmistakable force in music."

The event will also see Duran Duran receive the ASCAP Golden Note Award, while the winners for the ASCAP Global Impact, Song of the Year, Top Digital Song, Top EDM Song and Film Score of the Year will also be announced.
