JOURNEY's NEAL SCHON, JONATHAN CAIN And STEVE PERRY Among Nominees For SONGWRITERS HALL OF FAME
JOURNEY's Jonathan Cain, Steve Perry and Neal Schon are among the nominated artists for next year's Songwriters Hall Of Fame.
The 51st annual Induction & Awards Gala will be held on June 11 in New York City.
The Songwriters Hall Of Fame is dedicated to recognizing the work and lives of those composers and lyricists who create music around the world. A songwriter with a notable catalog of songs qualifies for induction 20 years after the first significant commercial release of a song. Eligible voting members will have until midnight on December 16, 2019 to turn in ballots with their choices of three nominees from a songwriter and three from a performing songwriter category.

Perry reunited with JOURNEY for the first time in years as they were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in April 2017. The iconic singer appeared onstage with his former bandmates as they each gave speeches, but did not perform with the group later in the event.
Perry's final full concert with JOURNEY took place in early 1987. He later rejoined his bandmates for a brief performance in 1991 to honor late concert promoter Bill Graham. He also appeared with JOURNEY when they received a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame in 2005.
