In recognition of SHOF Chairman Emeritus Hal David’s longstanding support of up-and-coming composers, the Hal David Starlight Award was established in 2004. The young, talented songwriters who are winning awards are having a big influence on the music industry with their creative tunes.

The four-time Grammy Award winner and genre-bending artist was born in St. Louis and reared in Maplewood, New Jersey. On December 9, 2022, she finally released her highly anticipated sophomore album SOS through Top Dawg Entertainment/RCA Records. The album was certified gold by the RIAA upon its release.

SOS premiered at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and held that position for ten non-consecutive weeks, receiving widespread praise immediately upon its release.
