The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard will honor songwriter Diane Warren with the inaugural Film & TV Music Career Achievement Award at an exclusive lunch reception in Los Angeles on Nov. 14.

Warren was chosen as the first-ever Hollywood Reporter and Billboard Film & TV Music Career Achievement Award recipient due to her overall career achievements in film, TV and music as well as her current influence on these industries. This private reception will be held during the Hollywood Reporter/Billboard Film & TV Music Conference, taking place November 13-14 in Los Angeles. Warren will participate in a Q&A session on the role of her music in film and television at the conference.

Warren's songs have been featured in more than 100 motion pictures and she's written hit songs for such artists as Aerosmith, Elton John, Tina Turner, LeAnn Rimes, Michael Bolton, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Carrie Underwood, Joss Stone and Jennifer Hudson, among others.

"Diane Warren is one the most successful songwriters of our time, and has been a driving force in connecting the film and music industries," said Bill Werde, Billboard's editorial director.

Now in its seventh year, the Film & TV Music Conference will examine the evolving role of music in film and television. For more information visit
