Legendary songwriting and production team Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff has been named BMI Icons for the organization's 57th annual pop awards.

Pioneers of the Philadelphia soul revolution of the '60s and '70s, Gamble & Huff founded the iconic Philadelphia International label whose roster included the O'Jays, Lou Rawls, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes and Billy Paul, among others.

The pair's string of classic hits include "For the Love of Money," "Love Train," "Me and Mrs. Jones, and "If You Don't Know Me By Now."

Gamble & Huff join such BMI Icon predecessors as the Jacksons, James Brown, Bee Gees, Willie Nelson and Hall & Oates.
