Clive Davis honored his music exec son at a virtual holiday event.
The music legend presented Doug Davis with the 2020 Music Visionary Award during WME agent Richard Weitz’s seven-hour RWQuarantunes’ celebration earlier this week.
“This is a very personal and very proud moment for me, as music has been my professional passion, but overall, it must take second spot to the priority of family,” Clive said, “I am indeed bursting with pride on the continuing efforts and the recognition of my son’s professional and charitable achievements.”
He also auctioned off the opportunity to have a virtual meeting with him, and an invitation to his 2021 pre-Grammy gala.
Meanwhile, DJ Cassidy kicked off the Zoom party paying homage to his hometown. “No one steps up in a time of need like New York,” he said before spinning.
LL Cool J, Jody Watley, Lisa Lisa, George Clinton, Holly Robinson Peete, Deborah Cox, Rufus Wainwright, Marcus Mumford and El DeBarge were among the more than 1,000 guests who attended the event.
“It was crazy! Truly the best virtual event I’ve been to this year,” a spy told Page Six.
Weitz and his daughter, Demi, have been hosting the virtual pandemic concert series to raise money for COVID-19 relief efforts. The event raised nearly $800,000 for the UJA-Federation of New York’s Covid-19 relief.
