BMI partnered with the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation to present a special performance by Atlantic recording artist Melanie Martinez at the organization’s 40th annual Gracies Awards Luncheon, held recently (6/22) at the New York Hilton Midtown. The BMI songwriter, who was a finalist on Season 3 of NBC’s The Voice, performed in front of a packed room full of empowered female executives from the radio, TV and cable industries. Martinez’s debut album, “Cry Baby,” is scheduled to be released in August. The Gracies Awards Luncheon honors excellence by women in local, public and student television and radio.
