PRSMF X Black History Month – Jaelee Small

Here at the Fund we want to honour the enormous contribution that black songwriters and composers have made and continue to make to the music industry and society.

This year we’re remembering the great Jamaican singer-songwriter Millie Small, who died last May. Her hit single ‘My Boy Lollipop’ reached number two in both US and the UK chart in 1964 and it remains one of the biggest-selling ska songs of all the time, with more than seven million sales.

To celebrate the virtual edition of PRS Presents: celebrating Black History Month, we interviewed our beneficiary and Millie’s daughter Jaelee Small.

Support our work

The PRS Members’ Fund has been helping songwriters and composers in times of crisis since the 1930s, but we are only able to do this thanks to your generosity. By donating to us today you can help us to support songwriters and composers in times of need.

Every donation makes a difference. A donation as a one off amount, a
percentage of your PRS royalties or leaving a legacy in your will has a huge impact on how we can plan our services for the future. We will be happy to discuss the next steps with you if you would like to learn more.
