Andra Day will perform at this year’s 41st Annual Gracie Awards Gala on May 24 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWMF) announced Tuesday (May 17). The Gracie Awards honor outstanding individual achievement and programming by, for and about women.
“The Alliance for Women in Media stands tall at the forefront of the efforts being made to level the playing field in the media industry,” said Day. “It’s a true honor to be invited to perform for a room full of inspirational women who every day are bending the status quo and, whether they realize it or not, starting a revolution.”
Executive producer Vicangelo Bulluck added in a statement: “When I think about a female music artist whose music embodies empowerment, perseverance and strength, Andra Day comes to mind. She is a catalyst for change and uses her talent in songwriting to inspire and encourage young women around the world. It’s fitting and an honor to have her perform at the Gracie Awards Gala.”
Gracie Awards Gala tickets are for sale at the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation’s website. The May gala will recognize the national Gracies winners, while a June 21 luncheon in New York will honor local, public and student winners.
