Icons Of The Music Industry: Ken Ehrlich

Please join us as we welcome back legendary television producer/director, and longtime GRAMMY Awards Executive Producer, Ken Ehrlich to the Clive Davis Theater as we profile his impressive four-decade career. As a producer/creator, Ehrlich has introduced numerous innovative concepts for shows ranging from the GRAMMYs, the Emmys, the Blockbuster Awards, the Alma Awards, the Latin GRAMMYs, the European MTV Awards and the MTV Movie Awards, which he created in 1992. He got his start in 1974 as the creator of the PBS music series, Soundstage before moving to Los Angeles, where he has produced the annual GRAMMY telecast since 1980. Most recently, Ehrlich produced the CBS special "Sinatra 100 — An All-Star GRAMMY Concert," which was taped in Las Vegas and aired on Sunday, December 6, celebrating Sinatra's 100th birthday. Other specials from Ehrlich's résumé include the Lifetime Network's Intimate Portrait, VH1's Divas Live, We Will Always Love You: A GRAMMY Salute to Whitney Houston, and The Night That Changed America: A GRAMMY Salute To The Beatles. Other highlights include producing two shows with the Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger, the first-ever GRAMMY Museum Gala concert and a highly successful fundraising concert for the Barack Obama campaign. After the discussion, moderated by Scott Goldman, Vice President of the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares, Ehrlich will take audience questions.
