Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson and More Celebrate JAY-Z at Clive Davis Gala

JAY-Z was the man of the night at Clive Davis and the Recording Academy’s Pre-GRAMMY Gala in New York City on Saturday night.

The 48-year-old rapper was presented with the GRAMMY Salute to Industry Icons Award for his contributions as an industry trailblazer and music visionary. Celebrating the big honor with him was none other than Beyonce who, along with Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, Sean “Diddy” Combs and more, toasted to his grand musical legacy.

Beyonce and JAY-Z had attended the Roc Nation Brunch earlier in the day and did a complete outfit change for the night’s special occasion. The “Family Feud” rapper rocked a taupe suede suit with black lapels, a white dress shirt and black bow tie. The “Crazy in Love” singer looked chic in a beautifully sculpted black Azzi & Osta gown that featured a slender-waisted silhouette and elaborate ruffles. She also posted snapshots of her outfit on her website.
