BMI songwriters got to eat, drink and be merry with executives from the New York office in a pre-holiday get together on December 4 at Torch on the lower east side. Performances by Fugees co-founder Wyclef Jean and BMI songwriters Jerry "Wonder" Duplessis, Norah Jones and Chris Barron of the Spin Doctors really got the party going.
