Icons Of The Music Industry: Ken Ehrlich

Ahead of the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards, 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. 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.  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. Ehrlich also produced the CBS special "Sinatra 100 — An All-Star GRAMMY Concert," celebrating Sinatra's 100th birthday. Other specials from Ehrlich's résumé include 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. His most recent project, Greatest Hits, was a six-episode series with each episode highlighting a five-year period of music, ranging from 1985–2000. Each episode featured iconic performers as well some of today's biggest artists to perform the hits that defined that time.  After the discussion, moderated by Scott Goldman, Vice President of the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares, Ehrlich will take audience questions. This program is free. GRAMMY Museum members receive priority seating.
