The dazzling lights of Times Square welcomed some of America’s greatest songwriters for the 46th Annual Hall of Fame.


The event last night, June 18, at the Marriott Marquis Hotel celebrated talents  across all genres, from country, rock, blues and pop.


Inducted this year into the Hall of Fame were country musicians Toby Keith and Bobby Braddock, the late blues artist Willie Dixon, Grateful Dead’s Robert Hunter and the late Jerry Garcia, popstar Cyndi Lauper and rocker Linda Perry.


Honorary awards were given to Van Morrison, Lady Gaga and Nate Reuss. Former CEO of the American Society of Composers Authors and Publishers (ASCAP), John LoFrumento, was also recognized.


There were several performances over the course of the three-hour ceremony. Lady Gaga performed Linda Perry’s What’s Up?, while Carly-Rae Jepson covered Cyndi Lauper’s classic, Time After Time. Michael Buble also performed, while Van Morrison rounded off the evening.
