Funk originator George Clinton will be named a BMI Icon at the organization’s annual Urban Awards ceremony on Thursday, Sept. 10 at New York’s Jazz at Lincoln Center.

The Icon designation is given to BMI songwriters and artists who have had “a unique and indelible influence on generations of music makers.”

George Clinton will be saluted with an all-star musical tribute during the ceremony, and join an elite group that includes The Jacksons, James Brown, Isaac Hayes, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, The Bee Gees, Willie Nelson and Carlos Santana, to name a few.

The event will also honor the world’s premier R&B, rap and hip-hop songwriters, producers and publishers by celebrating the most-performed urban songs of the previous year from the BMI repertoire.
