CLIVE PARTY TO FETE JAY-Z

The annual Clive party will be entering an empire state of mind: Jay-Z will be this year’s honoree. The Pre-Grammy Gala will be held at Sheraton New York Times Square on 1/27, the evening preceding the 60th annual Grammy Awards.

Jay-Z, a 21-time Grammy winner, will be recognized as the 2018 Grammy Salute to Industry Icons honoree for his contributions to the music industry and his philanthropic endeavors such as the Shawn Carter Foundation that is dedicated to helping individuals facing socio-economic hardships further their education.

Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy said, “Jay-Z also embodies the vibrant spirit of New York City and we couldn’t imagine a more fitting honoree as we return to Manhattan for this year’s Grammy Awards."

"Jay-Z is a quintessential icon and I couldn’t be happier and more excited to share the evening with him,” said Clive Davis, co-host of the Pre-Grammy Gala. "What a night this will be. I remember when I first saw Jay…."

We fully expect our invitations to be lost in the mail.
