HOLLYWOOD, CA (JAN. 29, 2010) -- GRAMMY® winning superstars Ludacris and Roberta Flack met yesterday on the set of his top secret video shoot in Hollywood to gather a diverse group of music makers who, like themselves, were celebrating career milestones in 2010!

Joining Ludacris and Ms. Flack in Hollywood were current GRAMMY-nominated artists Hiroshima and The Foreign Exchange. Nominated for Best Pop Instrumental Album for the aptly titled "Legacy," genre- and culture-bending Hiroshima is celebrating its 30th year making music heard 'round the world. First time GRAMMY nominees The Foreign Exchange are celebrating their fifth collaborative year, as well as their nomination for Best Urban/Alternative Performance for "Daykeeper," the lead track from their latest CD Leave It All Behind.

Celebrating the tenth anniversary of his major label debut, event co-host and three-time GRAMMY winner Ludacris gave everyone bottles of his new cognac "Conjure." His co-host Ms. Roberta Flack, who is performing on Sunday's GRAMMY kudofest with R&B superstar and multi-nominee Maxwell, led the group in raising a glass to all music makers and the milestones everyone should celebrate each and every day.

Ms. Flack's milestone? "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face," which would go on to win the coveted GRAMMY Award for Record Of The Year, was released four decades ago. The single launched the legend's love affair with the Award as she has earned a total of four GRAMMYs thus far in her illustrious career.
