The 2023 GRAMMY Awards was an event that had everyone buzzing. From Queen Beyoncé making history to Harry Styles winning album of the year, there were a countless amount of highlights from music’s biggest night. But, what’s just as exciting as the GRAMMYs itself, are all of the terrific GRAMMY events that happen leading up to the big day… like the Gold Meets Golden event, which took place on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2023 at the Virginia Robinson Gardens in Beverly Hills, California.

The spectacular event celebrated how the biggest names in the entertainment industry and the most renowned athletes inspire one another and gave these superstars a chance to join together for a truly remarkable occasion. Co-hosted by Nicole Kidman and Nadia Comăneci, this year’s event was an extra special one commemorating Gold Meets Golden’s 10th anniversary. Not only was the marvelous event a perfect way to have kicked off GRAMMY weekend and honor great celebrities and sports stars alike, but it also benefitted Angel City Sports, “an LA-based adaptive sports organization that provides access to needed equipment, coaching, and training for aspiring young Paralympic hopefuls, and produces a yearly competition for athletes with physical disabilities, the Angel City Games” (source: press release).
