Moment: Beyonce Becomes First Black Woman To Win ASCAP’s Songwriter Of The Year Award
Over the course of her 16 years in the business, Beyonce’s literally done it all and continues to captivate. Growing into her roles as wife to Jay-Z and mother to baby girl Blue Ivy, folks shouldn’t forget that Queen B has been at this for a while. Back in 2002, the Destiny’s Child singer snagged ASCAP’s coveted songwriter of the year award. The songs she penned that gained her the top honor were “Independent Women Part I,” “Jumpin Jumpin” and “Survivor.” With an upcoming album, expect the Houston bombshell to reclaim her throne.
