Katy Perry Added to ASCAP EXPO and Full Schedule Announced

ASCAP is pleased to announce the addition of chart-topping pop sensation Katy Perry to the roster of panelists at the 8th annual ASCAP “I Create Music” EXPO, taking place April 18th-20th, 2013 in Los Angeles. Perry will take part in a special master session, entitled Wide Awake: “I Create Music” Interview with Katy Perry. Katy Perry is no manufactured pop princess – she wrote or co-wrote her songs every step of the way, including the record-breaking six #1 singles from Teenage Dream. Katy’s story is one of both talent and perseverance, and she’ll share the ups and downs of the journey in this keynote interview. Perry joins a long, impressive list of panelists at the EXPO, including Lionel Richie in conversation with Ne-Yo, Diplo in conversation with Big Sean, Akon, Jill Scott and many more!
