GRAMMY Museum's Latest Virtual GRAMMY Career Day To Feature Cheryl Cobb, Jody Watley & David Sears
On Wednesday, Dec. 2, the GRAMMY Museum, in partnership with the Ford Motor Company Fund, will continue its virtual GRAMMY Career Day music industry mentorship series for students. The online day of mentorship and career advice will feature GRAMMY-winning music and style icon Jody Watley, President of Cheryl Cobb Entertainment Cheryl Cobb and the GRAMMY Museum's own David R. Sears, Vice President of Education for GRAMMY In The Schools.
Students from three high schools—Northeast High School in Kansas City, Mo., Parkrose High School in Portland, Ore. and Shadow Mountain High School in Phoenix, Ariz.—will participate in the event.
According to the GRAMMY Museum, the programming "provides insight to high school students about careers that are available to them in the music industry, and direction on how to prepare for them. GRAMMY Career Day provides an opportunity for students to interact with professionals representing a wide range of careers. Speakers for Career Day include GRAMMY winners and nominees, and professionals in related disciplines. These interactive sessions take students through the inner workings of the industry to learn exactly what it takes to make it in the business."
The upcoming session follows eight other star-studded, regional Career Day events hosted this fall. The events are typically held in person across the country, but have gone virtual for the first time this year. More virtual Career Day events will take place in spring 2021, thanks to the continued support of the Ford Motor Company Fund.
