Nil Rodgers | Nile Rodgers re-elected President of the Songwriters Hall of Fame
Nile Rodgers was re-elected president of the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
The 68-year-old musician was unanimously elected by the board of directors for a second three-year term as president earlier this month.
Linda Moran, President and CEO of SHOF, said, “Nile is extremely respected and admired by his peers and fans of all generations for being a music pioneer with his multi-genre music. With an ever-expanding list of credits and achievements, having him as a partner has been a very special and rewarding experience and the Songwriters Hall of Fame cannot ask for a better representative, both for the songwriting community and for the world in general.
Nile added: “Three years ago I was honored and touched to be elected by my peers as President of the Songwriters Hall of Fame. It has been one of the most important experiences of my life. to represent and defend the songwriting community. “Having the opportunity to serve for another three years now is a responsibility I take very seriously. We did a great job in the first three years despite the pandemic, but we are only just getting started. There is no music industry without song and I am delighted to serve the songwriters who have delivered the most iconic songs of all time. “
Meanwhile, Jack Savoretti recently admitted he was jealous of Rodgers’ lingering passion for “going to work every day.”
The 37-year-old singer worked with legend Chic – as well as John Oates – on his new album ‘Europhiana’, and he was inspired by his sessions with the iconic musician.
He said: “He’s a guy who’s been at the top of his game for four or five decades and he still enjoys going to work every day. It’s something that I envy, because I feel it now but I don’t know if I’m going to feel it forever.
“Nile is relentless and he has been a mentor throughout this process.”
