Music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs was accompanied by his sons Christian Combs,13, and Quincy Jones Brown,20, to the 24th Annual Rhythm & Soul Music Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on June 24, 2011 in Beverly Hills, California.
During the ceremony, the dad of six was honored with the prestigious ASCAP Founders Award.
“To be recognized for my contributions to music by ASCAP, an organization that represents music creators, is a true honor,” said Diddy. “All I wanted to do was make people dance and hopefully inspire others to never settle for anything but their best.”
“Diddy is a world-renowned producer, performer, top-notch developer of talent, fashion designer, an actor and astute businessman,” said ASCAP President and Chairman Paul Williams. “His success is a testament to his entrepreneurial spirit, hard work and ingenious ability to add his personal touch to contemporary culture. He continues to be a major force in hip-hop music, and we are very proud to honor him with ASCAP’s Founders Award.”
