NEW YORK (AP) — Reasons to court Mariah Carey as an "American Idol" judge keep building: The pop star will be honored as a BMI Icon at the BMI Urban Awards.
She'll receive the honor Sept. 7 at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills. The award is given to an artist who has influenced generations in the urban music scene.
Carey is one of music's best-selling singers and is best known for her multiple No. 1 hits.
Carey joins past BMI honorees like The Jacksons, James Brown and Al Green.
A source told The Associated Press this week that Carey is being pursued to join the judging panel of "American Idol."
