Philly-based TSOP pioneers Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff will receive the top prize at this year’s Songwriters Hall of Fame ceremony: the Johnny Mercer Award.
Gamble and Huff — inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1995 — are most known for a string of Philly soul hits that spanned the 1970s and early-1980s, like Billy Paul’s “Me and Mrs. Jones,” Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes’ “If You Don’t Know Me By Now,” and the O’Jays “Love Train.” The duo recently made news for transferring the rights to their Philadelphia International Records Catalogue to Sony Music Entertainment. It’s a big year for these two.
