GBK’s Pre-Grammy Celebrity Gifting Lounge 2019

Spread the love

On February 8th and 9th, Gavin Keilly of GBK Productions hosted his annual Pre-Grammys Celebrity Gifting Lounge where participating brands are given the rare opportunity to hobnob with various Grammy Award related musicians, influencers and notables in exchange for a gift of their wares. Now I must admit, I’m an old school rock chick and unless Steven Tyler or Bob Weir was standing smack in front of me, I would not be able to pick most Grammy nominees out of a lineup if my life depended on it. Yet, I did chat with Motown legend Sam Moore, the “Soul Man” himself, as my sister shared the stage with him many times during her tenure as Isaac Hayes’ background singer. I also complimented Best Rock Performance Nominee Lizzy Hale of Halestorm on the really cool pair of lycra bell bottom pants she was wearing. Post event, I learned that nominees H.E.R., Chloe X Halle (the two beauties who killed it at the 2019 Super Bowl with their rendition of “America the Beautiful”), Alice and Chains, Ashley McBride and many more were in attendance.
