Top Female Artists Attend Bebe Rexha's Women's Dinner
In an event billed as both a "celebration" and "conversation," singer/songwriter Bebe Rexha hosted a special dinner on Feb. 27 for around 40 of music's top female artists, producers and songwriters, calling the night the Women In Harmony dinner.
Among the musical heavyweights in attendance were Sevyn Streeter, Latin GRAMMY Song Of The Year-winning songwriter Erika Ender ("Despacito"), Aluna Francis of AlunaGeorge, Avril Lavigne, Kelsea Ballerini, and many more.
"We're at a time where celebrating women is of utmost importance, and I think everybody in this room has always been a champion of female empowerment," said Charli XCX of the evening. "This is a room of amazingly talented songwriters, who have had multiple Billboard No. 1s. … It's important to shine a light on this community."

Hinting that she plans for the event to continue as an annual recurrence, Rexha told Billboard, "I want it to become what the Clive Davis [annual pre-GRAMMYs Gala] is. … I would love to expand it to executives and just really be a celebration for women in the music business."
