Picture of Claude Kelly

This year's program will feature speaker Claude Kelly, an American singer, songwriter and music producer. He is a four-time Grammy Award nominee, and has written or co-written songs for Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Britney Spears, Ariana Grande, Bruno Mars, Kelly Clarkson, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, Kesha, Brandy, and One Direction. He and Chuck Harmony make up the R&B duo Louis York, and founded the music collective Weirdo Workshop. He will discuss his humble beginnings, the obstacles he overcame, and how he stayed true to his own development to become who he wanted to be. Claude will also take questions from the audience in an interactive Q&A session.

SongDivision is also set to make a return to this event in 2022. A people engagement company, they're sure to bring the fun and help our members strengthen their connections with each other using the power of music.

Cheers For Your Peers

The event will also celebrate and congratulate your peers as we announce the winner in each CUES Award category!
