The GRAMMY Awards are, for this capital of the music industry, kind of like L.A.’s Super Bowl (well, along with the Academy Awards of course). But you know, the Grammys—highly problematic over the years. Some years one finds tons of musicians to root for. Other times… not so much.
Bravo to WVZ MFG (pronounced “Waves Manufacturing”) to take the initiative and reclaim the Grammys—to spotlight LGBTQ+, Queer and Black artists, musicians and fans and all their myriad contributions which are rarely acknowledged.
WVZ had their excellent roster on display, along with some legit superstars like Ts Madison (Rupaul’s Drag Race judge) and Kevin JZ Prodigy—both fresh from Beyoncé’s Renaissance—serving C.U.N.T., mama. [Shout out to my family, the House Of Abundance, who I recently experienced this with!]
Check out the photos and video. It was a privilege to be invited. Thank you. So fun!
The festivities were very organic. Such a vibe.
Cor.ece was a natural as event MC and superb as a performer.
We are so lucky to have WVZ MFG in Los Angeles and in our world. There’s a feeling that’s contagious when you are nailing it as WVZ is—artistically, organizationally, for the communities, for musical and artistic expression… WVZ has it and the feeling was shared and appreciated by all at their Grammy Jammy.
Can’t wait for next year!
