CLIVE PARTY TO HONOR BET'S LEE

This year’s Clive party will honor BET Networks Chairman and CEO Debra Lee. The 2017 Grammy Salute To Industry Icons will be held 2/11 at the Beverly Hilton. 

Lee is the first woman and the first non-music industry executive to be honored at the event. Lee has been BET’s CEO since 1996, and prior to that was the network's EVP of strategic business development.

Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy, said Lee’s “innovative vision, commitment to entertainment, and philanthropic work have had a profound impact on the industry as well as our broader culture. Debra has elevated BET to the remarkable platform it is today.”

"Debra's many years of wonderful work and dedication to the network, as well as raising the profile of businesswomen in the African-American community, has been remarkable and she truly deserves this great honor," said Davis, co-host of the Pre-Grammy Gala.

Lee noted “Music is a part of BET's DNA and it's always been my goal to touch people by educating, inspiring, providing opportunity, and affecting real change through the powerful medium of entertainment."
