“NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Brian McKnight presented Matt Cusson, who is currently touring with him, with the coveted Maxell Song of the Year prize from the 12th annual John Lennon Songwriting Contest. McKnight’s keyboard player, whom he has mentored, was surprised when the headliner announced Cusson’s win on stage at Morton Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, Texas and gave him the Lennon Contest’s top prize, a $20,000 check courtesy of Maxell Corporation. McKnight said of the songwriter/performer, “Matt has an incredible gift.” Mr Kamemoto, President of Maxell, and Kurt Yanagawa, Vice President of Sales Support, were on hand for the presentation. Cusson’s success in the Lennon Contest started when his original composition, “One Of Those Nights,” was selected as a Grand Prize winner in the Jazz category. The song then went on to receive the “Lennon Award,” making him eligible to win this year’s top prize, the $20,000 Maxell Song of the Year.”
