Katy Perry, Niall Horan, Beck and More Turn Out to Celebrate Capitol Records’ 75th Anniversary
Last night (Nov. 15, 2016), Capitol Records celebrated the 75th anniversary of the illustrious label. To commemorate the occasion, the label threw a giant party featuring appearances from several of their world-famous acts including Katy Perry, Halsey, Niall Horan and a ton more!
Earlier in the day, Capitol Records became the first record company to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! Perry and Universal Music Group chairman/CEO Sir Lucian Grainge spoke at the ceremony where the latter discussed returning the label to prominence.
“Capitol is back and home to a new generation of artists, innovators and entrepreneurs,” Grainge said, via Billboard. “We’re celebrating something today that only four years ago would have been completely unimaginable. For six decades this building has served as an incubator for the most influential music the world has ever had, from Frank Sinatra, The Beach Boys and The Beatles to Beck, Sam Smith and Katy Perry. Our priority when we acquired Capitol was to restore this company to its former glory, embodying the spirit of what was and is the spirit of today and the future.”
