The performing rights organization held its annual ceremony on Tuesday night (September 19) at The Highlight Room in Los Angeles, with the aim to recognize its songwriting and publishing members.

“We are honored to celebrate our songwriters and publishers across multiple genres,” Sam Kling, CCO of SESAC Performing Rights, said in a statement. “SESAC is proud of its affiliates who continue to write chart-topping hits and we enjoy every opportunity we get to celebrate their achievements.”
