American Music Award presented to Kool and the Gang in 1986, in the category of Favorite Soul Group. Award was specifically given to Ronald Bell, founding member of the group and brother of Robert ''Kool'' Bell. Pyramid-shaped lucite award rests on a base with a plaque affixed to the front bearing the name of the award and its recipient. Unlike the Grammys, which are determined by music industry insiders, the American Music Awards are based on record sales and airplay. Award trophy measures 14'' in total height on a 4.5'' square base. Some chipping to base and a chip to the lucite, removing the ''d'' in the word Award. Overall very good condition.
