#NissanDiversity recently was one of the top sponsors of the National Museum of African American Music’s “Celebration of Legends” gala, which took place Thursday, June 27, at the Music City Center’s Karl Dean Ballroom in Nashville. The gala celebrated African American musical and cultural figures who have made significant contributions to American music across all genres. George Clinton, Doug E. Fresh and Gloria Gaynor were presented with the “Rhapsody & Rhythm” award. “The Rhapsody and Rhythm honorees span the breadth of African American music, representing disco, hip hop and funk,” said NMAAM president and CEO H. Beecher Hicks III. “Even the museum’s tagline, “One Nation Under A Groove,’ is an homage to George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelics’ quintessential song.”
