JAY-Z TO BE HONORED WITH ‘SALUTE TO INDUSTRY ICONS’ AWARD AT 2018 GRAMMYS
Jay-Z has already achieved the unthinkable in music but he will be able to add another feather in the cap come January, 2018. GRAMMYs has announced that the multi platinum and 21 time GRAMMY winner rapper will be honored with the Salute To Industry Icons award at the Pre-GRAMMY Gala on Saturday, January 27, 2018 hosted by Clive Davis at Sheraton, New York Times Square.
The Pre-GRAMMY Gala has always long been one of the most prestigious events around the main award ceremony. In the past, the Salute To Industry Icons award has been given to folks like Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss, Irving Azoff, Martin Bandier, Sir Richard Branson, Clive Davis, Ahmet Ertegun, David Geffen, Berry Gordy, Lucian Grainge, Debra L. Lee, Doug Morris, Mo Ostin, and Antonio “L.A.” Reid. Hov, who is the first hip-hop artist to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame, will become the latest recipient of the Salute To Industry Icons award.
