(A portion of the proceeds from The Recording Academy Los Angeles Chapter's GRAMMY Block Party benefitted PATH, a Los Angeles-based organization dedicated to ending homelessness for individuals, families and communities.)
Rickey Minor, music director for "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," recently participated in an installment of The Recording Academy's 5 Questions With … series. Hosted during The Recording Academy Los Angeles Chapter's GRAMMY Block Party at The Academy's headquarters in Santa Monica, Calif., Minor discussed the music director profession, his career highlights, advice for aspiring artists, and favorite GRAMMY moments, among other topics.
"I think that success is readily available for us all," said Minor. "The biggest thing is to learn quickly how to get out of our own way. And that's something that I'm thankful for, that I recognize that the only thing stopping me is me."
A longtime member of The Recording Academy, Minor is a former Los Angeles Chapter Trustee and active participant in the GRAMMY Foundation's annual GRAMMY Camp. Minor also served as music director for the Los Angeles Chapter's GRAMMY Block Party.
