Davis opened up about the legendary soiree during an interview with Variety on Thursday. 

‘We don’t discuss performances because the whole thing is a surprise. But in the audience will be [Motown founder] Berry Gordy and Diana Ross and Jay-Z and Beyonce and Bon Jovi, and newer artists will be there, like SZA, Ice Spice, Noah Kahan and [basketball great] Scottie Pippen and [tennis superstars] Martina Navratilova and Serena Williams.

‘I think it will be Nancy Pelosi’s 24th or 25th consecutive year. It’s a unique audience.’

He added: ‘We’re here for the party, so obviously, there’s so much on my mind right now. 

‘People are flying in from all over the world and we’re hoping to meet and perhaps exceed their expectations. That’s a big challenge. I take it seriously, and I’m excited.’

Sponsored by Hilton, IBM and Mastercard, the Pre-GRAMMY Gala will honor Sony Music Publishing Chairman and CEO Jon Platt as the 2024 GRAMMY Salute To Industry Icons honoree. 

‘Jon Platt is one of the music industry’s most illustrious leaders and I am thrilled that he will be this year’s Salute to Industry Icons honoree,’ Davis said in a statement. 

‘Jon’s longtime trailblazing commitment to supporting songwriters across the music spectrum as well as his staunch dedication to advocacy, diversity and equality in the music business are exemplary,’ he continued.

‘His ongoing commitment to equity, his dedication to quality, and his advocacy for artists across all crafts and genres have been an inspiration to music leaders everywhere. We look forward to an incredible evening dedicated to honoring his incredible impact.’

Throughout Platt’s leadership, Sony Music Publishing has fortified its historical foundation while also paving the way for future success. 

This era has witnessed the establishment of groundbreaking collaborations with iconic songwriters such as Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, and Ashley Gorley.
