About Women In Motion

Kering’s commitment to women is at the heart of the Group’s priorities and extends, through Women In Motion, to the field of arts and culture, where gender inequalities are still glaring, even though creation is one of the most powerful vectors for change.

In 2015, Kering launched Women In Motion at the Festival de Cannes with the ambition of highlighting women in cinema, both in front of and behind the camera. The program has since expanded in a major way to photography, but also to art, design, choreography and music. Through its Awards, the program recognizes inspirational figures and young female talent, while its Talks provide an opportunity for leading personalities to share their views on the representation of women in their profession.

BUSTA RHYMES HEADLINES RIAA & SPOTIFY EVENT SUPPORTING MUSICIANS ON CALL

The Recording Industry Association of America® (RIAA) and Spotify presented their annual event benefiting Musicians On Call (MOC) at newly opened venue, The Atlantis, in DC last night. MOC’s mission to highlight the healing power of music was amplified at the exclusive event as the music community, industry professionals and policymakers came out to support their vital work – delivering music to bedsides in healthcare environments. RIAA Chairman/CEO and MOC Board Chairman Emeritus Mitch Glazier served as the unofficial emcee before introducing Busta Rhymes, who dialed into Platinum-certified tracks from his legendary career.
“Our partnership with RIAA has provided crucial support for our programs for well over a decade. This annual event in our nation’s capital not only helps to support our mission, but allows folks on the Hill to celebrate the healing power of music and the musicians and songwriters who create it,” said Musicians On Call President & CEO Pete Griffin. “Our bedside program is returning to hospitals in the DC Metro area now, and we look forward to welcoming more musicians and music lovers into our MOC community as volunteers. Thank you to RIAA and Spotify for helping raise awareness for our mission and to the iconic Busta Rhymes for such a memorable night!”
The iconic rapper, producer and in-demand collaborator hit the stage with “Ante Up,” “Put Ya Hands Where My Eyes Could See” and Platinum “Don’t Cha” before delivering tracks from his new album BLOCKBUSTA – “OK (ft. Young Thug),” ROBOSHOTTA (ft. Burna Boy),” “BIG EVERYTHING (ft. DaBaby).” He kept the intensity going through Platinum “Woo-Hah!! Got You All in Check,” “All I Do Is Win,” “Break Ya Neck” and more as a palpable bounce kept the room on their feet.
From there, the energy seeped into the crowd with attendees transfixed by the larger-than-life, Brooklyn-born performer until the very last beat dropped. Busta Rhymes interrupted his own flow to address the room saying, “I want to make a toast to everyone that put this event together tonight, everyone that plays a role in pushing the culture forward in a productive way, and everyone here that advocates for artists.”
“How lucky are we to be here tonight with this incredible Conglomerate / Epic Records’ superstar of American culture, Busta Rhymes!” said Glazier as the night wrapped. He then joined RIAA COO Michele Ballantyne for a special plaque presentation recognizing Busta Rhymes’ incredible career. “I was going to come out here and tell you all how Busta Rhymes emerged in the Golden Era of Hip-Hop, but he just took us through every era of Hip-Hop tonight! So, we want to make sure we celebrate in the proper way – with this beautiful plaque commemorating your career’s 22 million RIAA certified units for your solo titles and collaborations. We know there are many more to come!”
“Musicians On Call is a special program that brings people together to experience the healing power of song, helping patients and caregivers know that they’re not alone during trying times. Spotify is proud to support this work in our partnership with RIAA so we can all continue our joint mission of connecting people through music. And we applaud the masterful career of Busta Rhymes whose music has bridged genres to unite audiences for decades.” said April Boyd, Spotify Vice President of Government Affairs & Public Policy.
Other notable supporters this year include Alibaba Group, Ford Motor Company, Global Innovation Policy Center (GIPC), Jewel Box Platinum, National Music Publishers Association (NMPA), Recording Academy and SoundExchange.
