Alicia Keys is set to be the recipient of the Golden Note kudo during ASCAP's 22nd annual Rhythm & Soul Awards.

The event, which takes place June 26 at the Beverly Hilton, also recognizes ASCAP songwriters and publishers of the most-performed R&B, hip-hop and gospel songs from 2008.

According to the performing rights org, the Golden Note laurel "is presented to songwriters, composers and artists who have achieved extraordinary career milestones."

Keys, along with Wyclef Jean, will also receive BET's 2009 Humanitarian Award at the Shrine Auditorium on June 28.
