Furniture World News on

AmericasMart announced that five-time Grammy-winner Michael McDonald will take the spotlight as the headlining performer at the inaugural ICON HONORS awards celebration, July 17, in conjunction with the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market. His performance will set the stage for the spectacular evening of commemoration and entertainment.

McDonald, creator of hits such as "I Keep Forgetin’," "Yah Mo B There," and "On My Own," has been a fixture in American pop music for more than three decades. After emerging from the local scene, his first stint with fame came from his role in Steely Dan’s touring band, followed by award-winning songs and performances with the Doobie Brothers.

McDonald’s distinctive, recognizable voice will capture the emotions and excitement of hundreds of gift, home furnishings and area rug industry professionals attending the HONORS celebration. His concert is expected to be an epic performance for the grand debut of this international awards program, according to Jeffrey L. Portman, Sr., AmericasMart president and chief operating officer.

"Michael McDonald is a renowned musician loved by all generations," says Portman. "He has had a significant impact on the music world and will help us celebrate those that have had a positive impact on our industry. It is an honor to have a legend like Michael on our stage for the first HONORS awards program."  

Following McDonald’s performance,  there will be a landmark keynote address by a celebrated retailer and the anticipated awards presentation, honoring retailers, product manufactures, sales agencies in 18 individual categories.

Created exclusively by AmericasMart Atlanta in collaboration with GHTA and HFN, ICON Honors is the first international program fully embracing the gift and home categories in an independent recognition of exemplary achievement across the industry triumvirate:  product manufacturing, product sales representative businesses and retailing.
