Ellie Goulding scored her 17th BMI award, winning the performing rights organisation’s President’s Award at the 2022 BMI London Awards on 3 October. The private event, held at London’s Savoy Hotel on October 3, also honored Tems, who became a global revelation with the BMI Influence Award, and Ed Sheeran in various categories.

With this award, Goulding joins other honorees such as Imagine Dragons, Noel Gallagher, Luis Fonsi, Pitbull, Willie Nelson, Gloria and Emilio Estefan and many more. BMI President and co-host of the evening, Mike O’Neill, presented him with the award.

“I’ve never won anything like this and it means a lot to me,” Goulding said in her acceptance speech. “I moved out of my house when I was 16 and it kind of started there. And I felt like I had a lot to lose by making a living doing something that everyone told me was definitely impossible.”

The British pop star continued: “In the United Kingdom in particular, and as a woman, the idea is ingrained that ambition is something bad and not great, but it shouldn’t be. Ambition is an essential ingredient. , and together with talent and a bit of luck, for anyone hoping to have a long term career, in a very tough industry, it’s a must, so for anyone standing in their way, please don’t listen to the people that says you want something bigger and better, because you deserve it.

In a world that calls for urgent action, in a country that calls for compassion, let music play its part in empowering others to begin,” said Goulding, who performed versions of her singles “Woman” and “New Heights ,” also from his 2020. album “Brightest Blue”, accompanied by a pianist and backing vocals.

Thank you for this award…I’ve come a long way and I’m so grateful.”
