BMI Michael Jackson Award

1990
8th May
In recognition of his enormous contribution to American culture, The Broadcast Music Industry presents its first ever BMI Michael Jackson Award to Michael himself in a ceremony held at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel.

The award honors a songwriter or composer whose work encompasses important contributions to such creative disciplines as recording, film, dance and video. The Michael Jackson Award won’t be handed out on a yearly basis, instead BMI says it will occur only when artists have attained similar creditable heights as Michael regarding record sales, humanitarian efforts, business attributes, etc. President Frances Peterson says, “In the past we have awarded Michael Jackson for his songs and sales.

This is an award for Michael Jackson the man.”
