The ASCAP Foundation Jerry Ragovoy Award
The ASCAP Foundation Jerry Ragovoy Award was established through the generous support of Jerry's widow, Bev Ragovoy, to honor the memory of the great R&B, Rock and Pop songwriter, Jerry Ragovoy. It is presented annually to an outstanding participant in The ASCAP Foundation Jerry Ragovoy Songwriters Workshop, which is also made possible through the financial support of Bev. The recipient is selected by a panel of music industry professionals, including workshop guest mentors, at the conclusion of the workshop.
Jerry wrote or co-wrote such classic hits as "Piece of My Heart," "Time Is on My Side," "Cry Baby," "Get It While You Can," "Stay with Me Baby" and "Pata Pata."
