HITS Daily Double


An intimate dinner took place on 7/19 to celebrate Torae Carr’s new position as president of the Recording Academy’s New York chapter.

Held at Manhattan’s Tao Downtown, the event welcomed guests like hip-hop tastemaker/media personality Sway, Ron Mills of SiriusXM and Motown's Jessica Mortime. Torae, creator and host of "The Tor Guide” on SiriusXM's Hip-Hop Nation, is a songwriter, actor, rapper, philanthropist and entrepreneur.

“Last night was a truly amazing night,” he said. “To have that caliber of people show up to celebrate meant the world to me. Having people I’ve encountered throughout the business grow into family is a part of the journey I never knew could occur. Every aspect of my career was represented in some way at that table last night and I’m forever grateful.”
