JAY-Z TO HONOR JON PLATT

Jay-Z will present Warner/Chappell Music Chairman and CEO Jon Platt with the Spirit of Life award at the City of Hope gala on 10/11.

“It’s no secret that I don’t like being the center of attention—that’s for the songwriters—but when I accept the Spirit of Life award this fall, I can’t think of anyone else I’d rather have presenting it to me,” Platt said. “Jay is unquestionably one of the most giving and genuine people I know, not to mention one of the greatest songwriters on the planet. I feel lucky to call him my brother. October 11 is going to be a really special, unforgettable night.”

Jay-Z will have just returned from the On the Run II Tour with Beyoncé, which began just as the Carters surprise-dropped their first joint album, Everything is Love. This past weekend, Jay-Z held his annual Made in America music festival in Philadelphia.

Pharrell Williams will be the evening’s host. For more information click here.
