'Don't Stop (Funkin' 4 Jamaica)' chanteuse Mariah Carey will be honoured as the BMI Icon at the BMI Urban Awards on September 7, it's been announced.

The award high­lights Mariah's "unique and indelible influence on gen­er­a­tions of music makers" and will include an all-star tribute thing.

No word as yet who might be doing the tributing or whether Mariah herself will have a bit of a singsong, but we're sure that will all be announced in due course, as these things often are.
