The inaugural GRAMMY Artists Revealed event featuring Pat Benatar and presented by MasterCard, rocked the Nokia Theatre in New York City on October 7th, 2009. Pat and her husband and collaborator Neil Giraldo took some time out to sit down with the www.grammy.com team and answer fan questions taken from our Facebook page. Here are their insightful, humorous and well-appreciated answers!
"The new GRAMMY Artists Revealed events will celebrate revered artists and their personal road to the GRAMMYs," said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy. "We are proud to kick off this series with one of the most talented artists in pop/rock history, Pat Benatar. And we are honored to partner with MasterCard, an organization that is truly committed to music, to deliver these unique experiences."
"We're ecstatic The Recording Academy has asked us to share our road to the GRAMMYs story," said Benatar and Giraldo. "Winning a GRAMMY Award is the highest achievement for an artist, and the opportunity to perform in an intimate venue for our fans in the city where it all began is even more thrilling."
