Everybody that is ANYBOY in the MUSIC BUSINESS attended Clive Davis’ Annual Pre-Grammy Gala
Apple’s Tim Cook, Netflix’s Ted Sarandos, recent Super Bowl champ Julian Edelman, Wolfgang Puck, Earth, Wind & Fire, Dionne Warwick, Kathy Griffin, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Calvin Klein, Angela Bassett, Berry Gordy, Fred Armisen, George Clinton and Darren Criss.
Barbra Streisand, Joni Mitchell and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar were all in attendance, but it was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who got the most requests to take a selfie.
Pelosi received rock star treatment Saturday night from attendees at the annual pre-Grammy event, which also featured a stunning tribute to the late Aretha Franklin, an artist Davis worked closely with for decades.
Jazmine Sullivan and Rob Thomas PERFORM Aretha Franklin and George Michael’s CLASSIC hit, ‘I Knew You Were Waiting For Me’:
Rapper Travis Scott, nominated for three Grammys, kicked off the night with the hit “Goosebumps.” Before performing “Sickomode,” which reached No.1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart last year, he told the audience: “I only came to rage.”
“Don’t be scared to stand up now,” Scott’s DJ said.
The Time made a surprise appearance, bringing the audience to its feet with a fun performance. The group, along with Quincy Jones, honored Clarence Avant, the 87-year-old music executive known as the “godfather of black music.”
