Drake Honored at Songwriters Hall of Fame

Skylar Grey and Drake

Drake had every reason to be “on one” as he was recognized for his songwriting talents at the 42nd Annual Songwriters Hall of Fame gala at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York last night. The Canadian star was presented with the Hal David Starlight Award by acclaimed musician Jimmy Jam. He celebrated the big night with his mother, who was beaming with pride.

“Just won the most incredible award and performed for my mother…a year ago today she was being wheeled into a surgery room…I love you,” tweeted Drizzy, who rubbed shoulders with music icons Chaka Khan and Garth Brooks.

Skylar Grey showed off her secret talent, playing the lap dulcimer and singing Michael Jackson’s “Human Nature” and Madonna’s “Crazy for You” in honor of songwriter John Bettis.

    Congrats Drake #NoShade on him at all but why hasn’t someone who’s been in the game for 10+ years gotten this award? Writes all their music. Maybe cus she’s a female. *shrugs shoulders* –__–

    @Mia, He’s overrated enough tot have 3 people remake a song of his that just came out 2 weeks ago! JCole been dropping music….Big Sean leaked. Yet it’s Drizzy that moves the people. There’s nothing overrated about that….that’s art.

    I wasn’t a big fan of Chop the Throne I usually like a lot of what DJ Candlestick and OG Ron C do but I found Slim K’s rovsien of WTT better simply it didn’t have a lot of unnecessary chops and rewinds. Chop Care however, is what the dopeness I come to expect from the Chopstars. It’s definitely a great tape and The Ride and Crew Ride gets murked C&S’d.
