The celebration of the 58th Annual Grammy Awards will bring together music industry elite for an exclusive brunch hosted by award-winning producer Bryan-Michael Cox. The annual “Breakfast Club” event will present guests with an eco-infused experience provided by the Toyota Green Initiative, an environmentally focused program designed to promote sustainability.
Cox, a Grammy award winner notable for his extensive work with multiple platinum-selling artists, hosts the annual brunch as an opportunity to honor industry influencers and groundbreaking artists, such as Sean “Diddy” Combs, Swizz Beatz, Jon Platt, and Chris Hicks. This year’s honorees are songwriter and producer, Kawan “KP” Prather, as well as record label executive and recording artist, DJ Khaled.
The Toyota Green Initiative (TGI), developed by Toyota in 2008, has been a catalyst for promoting sustainability across the country. With a focus on engaging African-Americans, TGI has become an influential voice in educating communities about green living by using unique events to communicate its messaging.
“Aligning with Bryan-Michael Cox, who has demonstrated a commitment to sustainability through his innovative approach to music producing, seemed like a natural fit for us,” says Toyota’s vice president for African-American Business Strategy, Jim Colon. Cox, who has been known to preferably record music in environmentally sound studios, felt the TGI brand would resonate well with his guests. “I really believe in what Toyota is doing through the TGI program, so I wanted to take advantage of this opportunity to make my peers in the music industry aware and more conscious of sustainability as a whole.”
The brunch which will feature exclusive eco-friendly car service in the 2016 Toyota Prius V for special influencers, will also showcase repurposed, mixed media artwork from Los Angeles based artist, Duane Paul. Music will be provided by hybrid artist, photographer, filmmaker and DJ, Catherine Ouellette. Guests will arrive on the “green carpet” for interviews with broadcast journalist, Sharon Carpenter.
