The Grammy Award nominee will sing at the May 24 gala sponsored by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, Billboard reports.
“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,” says 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 calls the singer from Spokane, Washington the perfect entertainer for the event.
“When I think about a female music artist whose music embodies empowerment, perseverance and strength, Andra Day comes to mind,” he says. “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.”
