The careers of two emerging artists were spotlighted on Sept. 28 at Up Close & Personal With Alex Da Kid And Skylar Grey, a program produced by The Academy's Producers & Engineers Wing and The Recording Academy Los Angeles Chapter.

Before a sold-out audience at The Academy's headquarters in Santa Monica, Calif., producer Alex Da Kid and singer/songwriter Grey engaged in an in-depth discussion moderated by radio personality/recording artist DJ Skee. Topics addressed included songwriting, recording and collaborating on Grey's forthcoming album, Invinsible, due in January 2012. Additionally, in an exclusive premiere, Grey performed a medley of songs from Invinsible.
