Beyoncé said it best, “Who runs the world? Girls.” With music being the sounding board in one’s life and women making their faces and musical purpose well known in today’s society, it was only right that Hot 97 music director and multimedia personality, TT Torrez hosted an intimate #GoGetHer dinner on Wednesday (Aug. 28) to celebrate women in music.
Torrez, who believes women are overlooked in the industry, wanted to remind spectators that when powerful women unite anything can be achieved. The #GoGetHer dinner series, presented by Hennessy, recognizes women who shatter barriers while setting new standards and the status quo.
A group of recording artists, record label executives, influencers, and more were present as Thea Mitchem, Executive Vice President of Programming for iHeartMedia and LaTrice Burnette, General Manager and Executive Vice President of Island Records were honored.
Power 105.1’s Honey German received the Rising Star award. “It’s about the most influential women who have inspired me along my journey as well as bringing along the ones behind me,” Torrez said.
Attendees included Chaka Pilgrim, Yo Gotti, Traci Adams, Juliette Jones, Shari Bryant, Laura Stylez, Megan Ryte, Tameka Malory, Gia Peppers, and more.
DJ Khaled and Kevin Liles were guest speakers. Khaled posted on his Instagram congratulating LaTrice Burnette on her honorary achievement.
Torrez shared an empowering message of the night’s events on her Instagram.
