22nd Annual Ascap Awards

Tuesday 17 May 2005

Superstars Mariah Carey and Usher joined Marilyn Bergman on stage to pay tribute to their musical collaborator. Jermaine Dupri has worked with Carey on a number of albums and has four songs on her current album The Emancipation of Mimi, which is tearing up the Billboard charts.
Dupri's work on Usher's multi-platinum album, Confessions, garnered four 2005 Grammy nominations for his songwriting and production work on chart-toppers, "Burn", "Confessions Part II", and "My Boo". Dupri and Usher picked up awards during the ceremony for their winning songs "Burn", and "Confessions Part II".
Mariah Carey and fellow artist Usher posed with music producer Jermaine Dupri after he received the ASCAP Golden Note Award at the 22nd Annual ASCAP Pop Music Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California last night. Mariah Carey and Usher celebrated with Jermaine Dupri and laughed at a joke made by music producer Jermaine Dupri during the 22nd Annual ASCAP. Both Usher and Carey paid tribute to Dupri before the producer received the ASCAP Golden Note Award.
Mariah Carey's recent hits, "It's Like That" and "We Belong Together", were collaborations with Dupri. Moreover, Mariah also worked with Dupri on the #1 smash hit "Always Be My Baby" from Mariah's Daydream album. The first time Mariah collaborated with Dupri was in 1994 with a remix of the "Never Forget You" single from the Music Box album. Some other fans remember him from the 1998 hit "Sweetheart".
