The Women Songwriters’ Hall of Fame, founded to honor women whose body of work represents the best of the heritage and legacy of modern American music, will pay homage to ten female songwriters on June 25, 2021 at the Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC. Grammy award winning artist Jody Watley, known for both her solo and smashes with Shalamar, is hosting the event.
The Inductees include:
Roberta Flack, who was the 1st artist in music history to win back-to-back Grammys for Song of The Year (only U2 and Billie Eilish have since joined her).
Singer/songwriter Valerie Simpson wrote and recorded hits for decades with husband and recording partner Nick Ashford.
Mary Chapin Carpenter, who is the only artist to have won four consecutive Grammy Awards for Best Female Country Vocal Performance, which she received from 1992 to 1995.
