The Creative Community for Peace (CCFP) has announced it will honor several music business executives at an upcoming event on October 4th.
The event is being held at a private home of attorney Aaron Rosenberg and TV producer Danny Rose. More than 250 other entertainment executives are expected to be present at the ceremony.
Scooter Braun, Neil Jacobson, and Aton Ben-Horin are being honored as “Ambassadors of Peace” in the Middle East. Scooter Braun is the founder of SB Projects, which currently manages stars like Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Ariana Grande, and others.
Neil Jacobson serves as the president of Geffen Records.
Aton Ben-Horin serves as the Global Vice President of A&T for Warner Music Group.
The CCFP says this year’s honorees “advance coexistence, instill hope, and create a better future for all” through their work.
Some notable attendees for this year’s event include Alec Benjamin, Bhad Bhabie, Mike Burstyn, K Camp, Taylor Dayne, Josh Duhamel, Josh Flagg, Shay Gray, Jake Miller, Mandi Perkins, Rona-Lee Shimon, Daniel Skye, and Ninet Tayeb.
Sponsors of the private event include Sony/ATV Music Publishing and the Blavatnik Family Foundation and Variety.
The Creative Community for Peace was created to oppose anti-Israel rhetoric. One specific slogan of the organization addresses the boycott, divestment, and sanctions strategy saying “Don’t Boycott. Build Bridges. Instill Hope. Create A Better Future.”
Scooter Braun has been an outspoken activist in the United States, organizing the March for Our Lives student event protesting for stricter gun control laws in the United States. In 2013, Braun was included on the Time 100 list of most influential people in the world.
Braun launched SB Projects in 2007 as a full-service entertainment and marketing company that included a wide range of ventures. In 2016, he won the award for “Best Talent Manager” at the International Music Industry Awards.
Undoubtedly, Lana Del Rey’s recent decision to pull out of an Israeli festival will be a fresh topic at the event. Del Rey was slated to play the Meteor Festival in northern Israel last month, but was pressured into canceling by anti-Israeli groups. Roger Waters of Pink Floyd also personally addressed Lana Del Rey, arguing that Israeli policies amount to apartheid.
