Diane was a representative when the worlds of music and politics came together in Washington D.C. at the Grammys On the Hill event April 6th. She joined other music leaders to speak with US Senators about issues that impact music creators and performers. Because Diane has international radio airplay, one issue that she spoke about in particular is that US terrestrial radio does not pay performance royalties. Most countries DO pay their artists these royalties. But because the US doesn’t pay performance royalties, in turn they do not pay American performers. It’s income lost for artists as well as taxable income for US. Most music fans would be surprised to know that Whitney Houston was never paid a performance royalty for the songs you heard her sing on the radio.
