Grammy Awards 2019: William DuVall, Alex Sparrow check out Pre-Grammy lounge 

Before any big event is a big gifting suite, and the Saturday before the Grammy Awards is prime time for pampering.

A week after pairing with Atlanta’s Icebox Diamonds and Watches for a pre-Super Bowl “luxury gift lounge,” GBK Productions teamed with STK for a “Pre-Grammy Lounge” at the W Hotel Westwood.

From Wander + Ivy single-serve wine to Hemp Hydrate water to one primary attraction, the massage monster dubbed the Kahuna Chair, celebs - including H.E.R. and Atlanta’s Chloe x Halle - mingled with an invite-only stream of visitors.

Atlanta's Willian DuVall of Alice in Chains checks out the Kahuna Chair at the Pre-Grammy lounge on Feb. 9, 2018.

Atlanta’s William DuVall, the singer for Alice in Chains still remembered for his punk roots in Neon Christ, was spotted relaxing in the Kahuna Chair, while Russian singer-actor Alex Sparrow made the rounds and spread his charm.

Sparrow, recently seen on season three of Lifetime’s “Unreal” (he played Alexi), chatted for a few minutes about his love of ‘60s pop and the harrowing car crash that almost claimed his life six years ago (Sparrow had a stroke, triggered by a previously undetected hole in his heart).

But the chiseled performer, known in his native country for winning “The X Factor” in 2005 at the age of 17, is working on new music and hopes to bring it on tour.
