The Songwriters Hall of Fame has announced that SZA will be the 2024 recipient of the eminent Hal David Starlight Award.

SZA will be honored at the 53rd Annual Songwriters Hall of Fame Induction and Awards Dinner, to be held on June 13 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.

The Hal David Starlight Award was named in honor of SHOF Chairman Emeritus Hal David for his longtime support of young songwriters. Award recipients are gifted young songwriters who are making a significant impact in the music industry with their original songs.

SHOF Chairman Nile Rodgers said, “This is such an exciting time for songwriters and music. Phenomenal artists like Beyonce and Taylor Swift are pushing the envelope of what success looks like but who could argue that the last 2 years belong to SZA. Incredible songwriting, incredible performances, incredible artistry. She so deserves to be the 2024 recipient of the Hal David Starlight Award!”

Four-time Grammy Award winning recording artist SZA released her long-awaited sophomore album SOS in December, 2022. It earned RIAA Gold certification upon release and amassed more than 400 million streams in the U.S. during release week. SOS debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and remained in the top spot for ten non-consecutive weeks.

SHOF inductees at this year’s event include Hillary Lindsey; Timbaland; Dean Pitchford; Bill Berry, Peter Buck, Mike Mills and Michael Stipe of R.E.M.; and Donald Fagen and Walter Becker of Steely Dan. Master songwriter Diane Warren will be receiving the prestigious Johnny Mercer Award.
