The 39th annual ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Awards took place on Thursday and Hollywood Unlocked was in the building to give you the keys!

The 2019 ASCAP awards which was heard in Hollywood celebrated the people behind the artist and that consists of the writers and producers. 

During the award show, Motown Records founder Berry Gordy Jr. accepted the award on ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Heritage Award on behalf of Motown.

Motown is the home of names like Migos, City Girls and Lil Yachty, and the foundation for musical icons like Diana Ross & The Supremes, Lionel Richie, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye. 

Tip “T.I.” Harris also took home the first-ever ASCAP Voice of the Culture Award for his influence on the culture and the creation of trap music. 

While on the carpet, we asked every celebrity what made this award show different than those honoring the musicians, and the statements were all similar. 

They each spoke about how the people behind the scenes are actually the most important because without them a lot of artists wouldn’t be who they are today.
