US Music Modernization Act signed into law

Kanye West Says Trump’s MAGA Hat Makes Him Feel Like “Superman”

US President Donald Trump has signed a Music Modernization Act, a bipartisan act which addresses music licensing and royalty legislation, among other issues related to music rights.

Musicians including Mike Love from the Beach Boys, Kid Rock, John Rich of Big and Rich, and Sam Moore of Sam and Dave came to the White House for the signing of a bill that substantially changes the way musicians are compensated for their work played on digital streaming services such as Spotify and Pandora.

Tropical Storm Leslie could once again redevelop into a hurricane as it spins in the open Atlantic. A hurricane Warning was issued from the Alabama-Florida border eastward to Suwannee River.

Multi-Platinum-selling MercyMe took part in Thursday's historic moment as the Orrin G. Hatch-Bob Goodlatte Music Modernization Act was signed into law. In front of reporters, the President asked legendary recording artist Kid Rock, "You like this legislation or do you hate it?" "We need to go after the record labels next, and things like free goods", he added. The singer-songwriter replied, "I like it". People like myself who are maybe more at the top of the food chain, it really doesn't affect as much.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said of the meeting: "Kanye West is coming to the White House to have lunch with President Trump and he will also meet with Jared Kushner". "They were treated very unfairly. They're not going to be treated unfairly anymore", Trump added. "While BMI will keep advocating to protect the livelihood of music creators in the digital age, we thank Congress and the President for taking this important step in implementing the most meaningful music licensing reform in decades". "The MMA brings the rules governing music into the 21st century, and represents a holistic improvement that will benefit the entire music ecosystem". "Today is about their future and this bill stands as a great statement on what can be done when we work together".
