SZA, renowned for her hit “Kill Bill,” is set to be honored by the Songwriters Hall of Fame with this year’s Hal David Starlight Award. Established in 2004, this accolade celebrates “gifted young songwriters who are making a significant impact in the music industry with their original songs,” as per the official announcement.

At 34, SZA joins a prestigious list of recipients, including Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Lil Nas X, and last year’s awardee, Post Malone. The presentation will take place at the 53rd Annual Songwriters Hall of Fame Induction and Awards dinner at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City on Thursday, June 13.

Nile Rodgers, SHOF Chairman, expressed excitement about SZA’s recognition, stating, “This is such an exciting time for songwriters and music. Phenomenal artists like Beyoncé 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!”

The ceremony will also feature inductions into the Hall of Fame for notable songwriters Hillary Lindsey, Timbaland, R.E.M., Steely Dan, and Dean Pitchford. Additionally, veteran hitmaker Diane Warren will be honored with the Johnny Mercer Award, adding to the star-studded event’s celebration of music excellence.
