Natasha Bedingfield (PRS) made her way across the pond to Los Angeles, where she was met by BMI Senior Executive Writer/Publisher Relations, Europe Nick Robinson and BMI Vice President and General Manager, Writer/Publisher Relations, Los Angeles Barbara Cane. The gathering was to present Bedingfield with one of BMI’s highest accolades, the Robert S. Musel Award for Song of the Year for her smash hit “Unwritten,” co-penned by BMI songwriter Danielle Brisebois.

The award, originally to be presented at the BMI London Awards, held October 16, 2007 at London’s Dorchester Hotel, was named after the U.S. performing right organization’s longtime consultant to the U.K. BMI annually honors the most-performed song of the year written by a member or members of BMI’s European sister organizations. Published by EMI Music Publishing Ltd. (PRS) and recorded by Bedingfield, “Unwritten” was the title track to Bedingfield’s platinum-selling debut album.
