The late Marvin Gaye, Elvis Costello, Tom Petty, Chip Taylor and Chic (Nile Rodgers, Bernard Edwards) were inducted into the Songwriters Hall in New York City on Thursday night. Nick Jonas, record executive Seymour Stein and Lionel Richie — already in the Songwriters Hall — earned special honours.
The New York Marriott Marquis in Times Square was full of classic and contemporary songwriters. The night included live performances by Jennifer Hudson, the B-52's, Marcus Mumford, Sister Sledge, Rachel Platten and Jussie Smollett of the hit Fox series Empire.
