The “Get Your Freak On” artist never seems to amaze us. From chart topping songs, movie cameos and business ventures, Elliott does it all.
This May, she will become the first female hip-hop artist to receive an honorary Doctorate of Music from Boston’s Berklee College of Music. Along with Justin Timberlake and Alex Lacamoire, she will be alongside the “fellas” at the college’s upcoming commencement.
As humbled as she can be, Elliott is eager and thrilled to receive this honor based upon the years devoted to being in the industry. Now it’s her time to add to her on going accolades by being a female artist.
Berklee College announced that its recipients are being “recognized for their achievements and influences in music, and for their enduring global impact.” Past recipients include Quincy Jones, Duke Ellington, Aretha Franklin and Smokey Robinson.
